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.

There are so many mundane tasks the morning after death. Those things are part of the here and now, but the heart is off in another world with the lost loved one.

I believe Emily is being sarcastic about the way we bustle about after a funeral luncheon trying to sweep away the emotions and love for the person along with the crumbs from the cookies.

I interpret the poem as the bustle not being in the house, but in the heart. Someone close has passed away or left and the cleaning and putting away is not of the house, but the emotions in the heart.

I believe this poem was written, because she fell in love with a (assumed to be) married lawyer in 1854, and he died from tuberculosis that same year.

i think this poem is about someone who she loved dearly died and how solemn it is the morning after. and how she doesnt want to feel love again until she dies. or she just doesnt want to think about it...
