Success Is Counted Sweetest - Poem by Emily Dickinson

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 today
Can tell the definition
So clear of Victory

As he defeated--dying--
On whose forbidden ear
The distant strains of triumph
Burst agonized and clear!

    In the poem “Success is counted on sweetness, Emily Dickinson strongly supports that in order to understand true success, you need to be someone who constantly fails and gets defeated. (Report) Reply

    I think that she is expressing how she knows what sucess is because she was not successful in her lifetime, but after she died, she became well known. (Report) Reply
