The First Favorite Friday!

In honor of the first FAVORITE FRIDAY, I’ve chosen some classic Emily Dickinson. She’s so whimsical. 🙂

 

 

I’m Nobody! Who are you?

by: Emily Dickinson

 

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!

    • I think they can. But only to a certain extent really when you think about employers, people you date, etc all being able to “google” you. Or how connected we all are to each other, with everyone being a phone call or an email away.

  1. I love this theme for Fridays and will check back often. Emily Dickinson is one of my fav poets too. And this is a great poem. Coincidentally, I have recently begun posting some of my favorite poems on Wednesdays. Perhaps we will inspire one another.

    (I found your blog on the Comment for Comment list).

  2. The problem with Emily Dickinson I find is that I cannot get my mind off the punctuation. Or perhaps that’s the fun of her.

    Anyway, must get back to my corner of the bog.
