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. 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. Reply

    This poem is saying that if you want to know what it's like to win ask the one who lost. Reply

    This is the opposite of sour grapes fable. The idea of victory is sweeter to those who loose than it is in reality to those who win. Reply

    I think it says that those who don't succeed imagine that it taste sweeter then it does for those who succeed and do taste it. Reply

Success Poems

  1. Success

    Oft have I brooded on defeat and pain, The pathos of the stupid, stumbling throng. These I ignore to-day and only long To pour my soul forth in one trumpet strain, One clear, grief-shattering, triumphant song, For all the victories of man's high endeavor, Palm-bearing, laurel deeds that live forever, The splendor clothing him whose will is strong. Hast thou beheld the deep, glad eyes of one Who has persisted and achieved? Rejoice! On naught diviner shines the all-seeing sun. Salute him with free heart and choral voice, 'Midst flippant, feeble crowds of spectres wan, The bold, significant, successful man.

  2. A Song Of Success

    Ho! we were strong, we were swift, we were brave. Youth was a challenge, and Life was a fight. All that was best in us gladly we gave, Sprang from the rally, and leapt for the height. Smiling is Love in a foam of Spring flowers: Harden our hearts to him -- on let us press! Oh, what a triumph and pride shall be ours! See where it beacons, the star of success! Cares seem to crowd on us -- so much to do; New fields to conquer, and time's on the wing. Grey hairs are showing, a wrinkle or two; Somehow our footstep is losing its spring. Pleasure's forsaken us, Love ceased to smile; Youth has been funeralled; Age travels fast. Sometimes we wonder: is it worth while? There! we have gained to the summit at last. Aye, we have triumphed! Now must we haste, Revel in victory . . . why! what is wrong? Life's choicest vintage is flat to the taste -- Are we too late? Have we laboured too long? Wealth, power, fame we hold . . . ah! but the truth: Would we not give this vain glory of ours For one mad, glad year of glorious youth, Life in the Springtide, and Love in the flowers.

  3. Lines Of Success

    Essence holds its dream entire, Strengthens hope true into fire To fit in it to be higher To the most breezed to aspire. Its strength with a wind-lot by, Sprouts ambition to the sky To bloom into a smile high. Happiness across to fly, Its fluttering wings in flight Spreads across the field its light. Blossomed is success glass-bright With glory mounting in sight. Heart content is in sublime, Remains diamond-worth in prime. Victory does reign in clime, Hailing joy bell-like to chime.

  4. Success Story

    Does success blind the man completely? Not wait and go for its show immediately? If he is earthly man then will slowly digest, Means and ways set first and then suggest, Only clever and seasoned will be enjoying, All of sudden success may lead to annoying, Way of living may bring tremendous change, Confidence enhanced and disorderly manage, Somebody may diversify to honouable living, Purchase of luxurious cars and self driving, , Honest may prefer and turn to charity reviving, Rest may go for sight seeing and sea diving, It brings dramatic change in way of thinking, Sudden urge and change some time lead to sinking, Arrogance and power blind a person, As sudden change you may find with season, You look towards fellow brothers as inferior creature, Their hello and address bite you as vulture, You feel their company danger for future, Ill feeling and distrust in mind nurture, This all takes away from main stream, Success story makes you to believe as dream, You feel as if you had God given chance, Forget the past and visit the club for dance, Drink, drug and smacks are natural ally, Money in hand doesn’t look silly, Pushed to the dark as time go on, No way to come back, not even soon, It will be nightmare or bad dream, Success may blind but not allow to scream, You will be completely cut off from friends, Down to earth when success story ends Success has another story to tell, People have learnt how to remain well, Act as humble and good ideas sell, Where does then bad or descend the hell
