Four Dickinson Songs I. I’m Nobody! Who are you?

Emily Dickinson (1830 – 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 day
To an admiring bog!
