Succeed By Emily Dickinson

Success is counted sweetest
By those who never succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.
.
Not one of all the purple Host
who took the Flag today
Can tell the definition
So clear of Victory.
.
As he defeated-dying-
On whose forbidden ear
the distance strains of triumph
Burst agonized and clear!
