“I’m Nobody” 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 your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
“I’m Nobody” is a humorous setting of Emily Dickinson’s poem, a glimpse into the mind of a quirky and peculiar introvert who would rather be left alone than tell one’s name all day to an “admiring bog.”
