When Emily wrote this, I think she was thinking about her life and it's
importance, but at the same time, realizing that life would go on even
after she was gone.

i strongly think that when emily wrote this poem she probably was in the
stage of drepession. Maybe the lost of her belovings. it seems like she
desire death in a calm way.
