What is the significance of the title?
When it says “What words have smashed against these walls, crashed up and down these halls” it means the previous family’s conversations and interactions can be seen on the walls and the halls. “And when I leave to find another house, I wonder what among these shades will be left of me”, this means that this persons past life will hopefully still exist in the house until they find another one to make more memory’s in.
