POEM OF THE WEEK: SUCCESS IS COUNTED SWEETEST


Success is Counted Sweetest

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!

-A
