The Bustle in a House
The Morning after Death
Is solemnest of industries
Enacted upon Earth—

The Sweeping up the Heart
And putting Love away
We shall not want to use again
Until Eternity.

I think that this poem explores the feeling and emotions of the character created wtih the poetry. Emily has clearly gone through a loss as the feelings explored within the play are precise to those mourning after a death. Lastly, The tone throughout the text is sad and depression as it shows a contrast of emotions as the character created within the play has a had a loss.

Emily is not the speaker. Poets are never the speaker

She is saying that although when a loved one dies we go through the emotions and grieve but you have to pick up the pieces and save that love for that person so when she dies she can spend eternity with her love one and when eternity comes then she can allow those feelings of love and devotion come back

Emily is saying that coping with the emotions associated with loss of a loved one is analogous to the preparation for the funeral. In her day, the house had to be cleaned and the sick room cleared of nursing items. She says we do the same with our love for the person - we pick it up, bundled it up, and save it until we meet the person again after death. It doesn't go away; it just gets packed up until later.

I think in this poem Emily is broke and she knows that in order to bury the dead person she'll need to get a job to make money. So she gets a job as a writer and makes cash you see? Sigh...

1st stanza
After a loved one dies while we are on earth we have to cope with the feelings that we have. The feelings a person has for someone then they die our feelings stay with us and they hurt. And some people can deal with these feelings some cant. The people that can’t deal with a love one’s death they often do bad things and get into trouble or become depressed and alone by Emily. I think what Emily was thinking when she wrote this poem was that she will lose a loved one sooner or later and she might not be able to coop with the death.
2nd stanza
After the love one dies you can’t share you love with them anymore. “we shall not want to use again until eternity” meaning the love she has for that loved one will never come back until the eternity is over. And so that means that her love for that person will never come back because eternity keeps going and going and going. So eternity is never ending. “Sweeping up the heart” meaning cleaning up the mess the heart made when it shattered. I think that Emily is afraid to get affectionate or loving someone because she doesn’t want to get hurt when something happens like death or something.

first stanza- the gathering of emotions after a loved one passed away is the most serious matters we have do cope with while we are on Earth.
The second stanza is "sweeping up the heart and putting love away"- coping with the death and the love you cant share with the one who died.
"we shall not want to use again until eternity"- is this irony with the lines above it. If she is putting away her emotions but not want to use them until eternity then that means shes not really putting her emotions away at all, right? I always end up questioning the meanings since you can interpret it so many ways.
