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 today

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!

People- By the term \'\'purple Host\'\' the poet doesn\'t mean the ones who won the battle in a war, but it is describing the royalty level \'\'purple host\'\' who have the power and always succeed with the lower class which in these case are the soldiers in the battle field who never succeed.

Those who have not succeeded are the ones who crave it the most.
To a person who never wins, victory is sweet, but to a person who has always won they dont understand the value of success. The poem describes a battle, the triumph over death. It mentions how some fail, but others succeed. For those who overcome the great battle, they can not measure the significance of victory compared to the losers. Those who lost the battle now understand the great importance of victory, by losing the battle and ultimately their life. It is in defeat that we truly learn to appreciate victory.
The poem is from the perspective of the loser in a battle. He describes the winners in the battle as the purple Host. Those Who took the Flag today cannot understand the meaning of victory. The speaker lays off dying, listening to the winners celebrate their victory. His ear is forbidden, since he will never achieve victory. He listens to the jubilation of the enemy, however agonizing and clear. The loser, by suffering defeat still has the deep desire to win, while the winners can merely wallow in the glow of victory.
