Emily Dickinson
Triumph--may be of several kinds--
printer friendly version
Triumph -- may be of several kinds --
There's Triumph in the Room
When that Old Imperator -- Death --
By Faith -- be overcome --

There's Triumph of the finer Mind
When Truth -- affronted long --
Advance unmoved -- to Her Supreme --
Her God -- Her only Throng --

A Triumph -- when Temptation's Bribe
Be slowly handed back --
One eye upon the Heaven renounced --
And One -- upon the Rack --

Severer Triumph -- by Himself
Experienced -- who pass
Acquitted -- from that Naked Bar --
Jehovah's Countenance --

(#455)
