Homework- Emily Dickenson

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!

Im Somebody! Who are You?
For English 101
I'm Somebody! Who are You?
You must be- Somebody- too?
Then there's alot like us?

How nice- it would be- Nobody!
How quiet- like a whisper-
To not know one's name- the silent day-
To be used to a day of the cold winter!
