Poem lyrics of Success Is Counted Sweetest

Bita, 2007

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!

Emily Dickinson

I like that you liked the poem. When i chose a poem to share with our viewers, i consider many things, amongst which is its ability to connect with every one at once.

And to be sure, I am a Proud Iranian, who is now a very law-abiding Citizen of this Glorious land Canada
