[DAY 69] About Success–Emily Dickinson

SUCCESS.

**

Success is counted sweetest

By those who ne’er succeed.

To comprehend a nectar

Requires sorest need.

*

Not one of all the purple host

Who took the flag to-day

Can tell the definition

So clear, of victory,

*

As he, defeated, dying,

On whose forbidden ear

The distant strains of triumph

Break, agonized and clear!

**

Emily Dickinson
