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

Hi everyone, I consider starting a month of Dickinson poems to raise awareness of this great writer. What do you like about her poetry? What poet would you like me to cover in future posts?

Happy reading and writing ✍️
