Poem Of The Month

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us-don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary, to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

-Emily Dickinson

Oh, that's a keeper! Funny I hadn't heard it before, but it doesn't sound like something I'd think of as Emily Dickinson's. More like a Shel Silverstein poem.
