I need the whole poem about "rushing around" for a funeral.

That's a tough task - can you give us a bit more information, please. We work best on accurage quotes, preferably containing unusual combinations of words.

death is nothing at all i have only slipped away into the next room what ever we are to each other we still are call me by my old familiar name speak to me in the same way we always have laugh as we have always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together play smile think of me pray for me life means all that it ever meant it is the same as it always was time is absolute unbroken continuity why should i be out of your mind because i am out of your sight i am but waiting for you for an interval somewhere very near just around the corner all is well nothing is past nothing has been lost one breif moment and all will be as it was before only better infinitely happier we will be one together forever

Shawna, you're working too hard, just cut and paste it:

Death Is Nothing At All
---by Henry Scott Holland

Death is nothing at all
I have slipped away into the next room
I am I, and you are you

Whatever we were to each other
That, we still are

Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way

Which you always used
Put no difference in your tone

Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together

Pray,smile,think of me,pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was

Let it be spoken without effort
Without the trace of a shadow in it

Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was

There is unbroken continuity
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight ?

I am waiting for you
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well

Les

The Bustle in a House... 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.
