Grief Poetry: The bustle in the house

A poem for grieving, coping with death, healing


The bustle in the house
by Emily Dickinson

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.
