The Vanity of Glory

Published by at 1:00 pm under Vanity of Glory

From Poems by Emily Dickinson, Series Two (1891), 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 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!
