Poem by Emily Elizabeth Dickinson


Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne'er succeed.
To comprehend  nectr
Reqires sorest need.

Not one of ll the purple Host
Who took the Flg tody
Cn tell the definition
So cler of Victory

s He defeted - dying -
On whose forbidden er
The distnt strins of triumph
Burst gonised nd cler!
