Karen at the infamous Karen Edmisten blog is hosting Poetry Friday today!! Naturally I had to choose something "Emily-ish" so this one's for you Karen :) In honor of just having finished our luscious little lunchtime read-aloud, this is from The Mouse of Amherst!
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
This delighful poem can also be found in this great book! Enjoy your day with some great poetry!!
