Dickinson, Emily: Legszebb a siker annak (Success is counted sweetest (112) in Hungarian)

Portre of Dickinson, Emily

Success is counted sweetest (112) (English)

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 to-day 
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!

Legszebb a siker annak (Hungarian)

Legszebb a siker annak,
Ki sosem éri el.
Tudni, hogy mi a nektár,
Ahhoz koplalni kell.

Ki a bíborló seregből
A zászlónál terem,
Nem tudja úgy leírni,
Mi az, hogy győzelem,

Mint a halálra sebzett,
Ha meglopott fülét
Távoli szép triumfus
Kínja repeszti szét.
