I'm Nobody!

- Emily Dickinson

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us -don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

  1. Ah, I was just reading Dickinson and came upon this one... to stop, and add it to our blog. I searched to see if someone else had come upon it too. So glad to meet you at this turn... :-)
