Despite the brevity of her poems, they are filled with complex ideas and layered meanings, inviting readers to contemplate and interpret her words.

I’m Nobody! Who are you?

by Emily Dickinson – 1830-1886

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!
