I’m nobody! Who are you?

I'm nobody! Who are You?
by Emily Dickinson, 1803--1886

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you-- nobody-- too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd advertise--you know!

How dreary--to be--somebody!
How public--like a frog--
To tell one's name--the livelong--June--
To an admiring Bog!

Emily Dickinson was Born on 12-10-1830,
in Massachusetts. While she was extremely 
prolific, she was not recognized during her
lifetime. Her first book was published 
posthumously in 1890.
