And now for something completely different . . .

April 26, 2005

Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part One: Life

XXVII

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!
