How does Walt Whitman's atitude change toward death during his poem "When Lilacs Last In The Dooryard Bloom'D" What does he learn?

I know that through the poem he speaks of the death, but I don't know how his atitude changed. I think he learns the truths of life and death, but I'm not sure how his atitude changed. I'm having a hard time understanding this. Any help would be appreciated.
