Poems in English

Who never lost, are unprepared

Who never lost, are unprepared

Who never lost, are unprepared
A Coronet to find!
Who never thirsted
Flagons, and Cooling Tamarind!

Who never climbed the weary league
Can such a foot explore
The purple territories
On Pizarro’s shore?

How many Legions overcome
The Emperor will say?
How many Colors taken
On Revolution Day?

How many Bullets bearest?
Hast Thou the Royal scar?
Angels! Write “Promoted”
On this Soldier’s brow!



Poem Who never lost, are unprepared - Emily Dickinson
