Analysis and comments on I had no time to Hate by Emily Dickinson

First stanza- Since she felt that her death (suicidal tendencies and
depression) was near, she had no time to hate and her personal life was
empty and so should did not want enemies.

Second stanza- She did not have time to love either, but some of the
industry ( probably the press, since she was involved in poetry) must be
supporting her. And her little world of poetry (toil of love) was large
enough for her to repay it.

I think she's saying life is too short to hate- and that, although life may
also seem too short to love, the realitive labor of love is minor compared
to the labor of hate and worth the risk.

I think what Emily is trying to say is that
LIFE itself may sometimes have no room to over power HATEover love. Her
direct comparissons with the two leads me to believe that she was very
bitter but not concerned with deeply rooted hatred.
