Emily Dickinson - 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 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 about Emily

I think Emily is right in that everyone is inclined to call Dickinson just Emily, because she is a woman. I find it curious then that you present yourself as jus t Emily ;-) In my comment on her poem Blossoms will run away, I address her as Miss Dickinson ...
