I’m Nobody! Who are you?

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 one’s name – the livelong June –

To an admiring Bog!

By Emily Dickinson

  1. Those sublime lines… Emily Dickinson continues to bewitch the readers with those words. Reflects her reclusive outlook though.
