    A stanza is just another word for verse. The following is a poem with two four-line stanzas by Emily Dickinso"n:

    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.
