Success Poem
SUCCESS is counted sweetest

By those who ne’er succeed.

To comprehend a nectar

Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple host

5
Who took the flag to-day

Can tell the definition,

So clear, of victory,

As he, defeated, dying,

On whose forbidden ear

10
The distant strains of triumph

Break, agonized and clear.

I interpret her meaning of the poem is that what she feels of success. There are 2 literary terms in the poem. They are figure of speech, and rhyme.

In conclusion about Emily Dickinson is that she wrote a poem about how success means to her. She was inspired by Ben Franklin. The PSA award was named after her. She died of kidney cancer on May 15, 1886.
