Joy Of Doing

in few days that didn't rain
ground hardened; already drain
still so soft for cows weight
solid enough for running deer
near rocks little stream flow
birds stop; sip water then go

some manage to wash their wings;
offer songs to their darlings
I listen and watch how they play
pretty smart; teasing each other
riding on backs; splashing water
reminds me home; children; happy

......amazing first stanza, those who never succeed wish to taste the sweet nectar of success....they realize how sweet it can be moreso than the one who is successful ★
In the poem “Success is counted on sweetness, Emily Dickinson strongly supports that in order to understand true success, you need to be someone who constantly fails and gets defeated.
I think that she is expressing how she knows what sucess is because she was not successful in her lifetime, but after she died, she became well known.
