To An Admiring Bog

Poem 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 day
To an admiring bog!

(I had a picture on my laptop computer
ready to use. Then before I knew the battery was running
Down, the electrical cord quit working.
My desktop computer was shocked out of service
By the recent tornado in the area. So, I
Have resorted to making a cell phone pic. )
