Victory comes late — by Emily Dickinson
690

Victory comes late —
And is held low to freezing lips —
Too rapt with frost
To take it —
How sweet it would have tasted —
Just a Drop —
Was God so economical?
His Table's spread too high for Us —
Unless We dine on tiptoe —
Crumbs — fit such little mouths —
Cherries — suit Robbins —
The Eagle's Golden Breakfast strangles — Them —
God keep His Oath to Sparrows —
Who of little Love — know how to starve —
