Respectfully, Emily Dickinson

I’m somebody!  Who are you?
Are you somebody too?
Then there’s a pair of us – do tell!
We must advertise – you know!

How dreary to be nobody!
More worthless than a frog
Who without a name - croaks all day
To be a bump on a log!

In response to:  Emily Dickinson’s poem – I’m nobody! Who are you?

    Wonderful writing here, Elaine!! Just finished a beautifully illustrated book "Judge Tenderly Of Me" by one of my favorites and your tribute is very well done! Haven't kept up with the contests but this surely is a winner!

    Stunning write, Elaine. I have been thinking about entering Tracy's contest and very nearly chose the same poem. So glad I didn't because mine would have been dull, dull, dull compared to yours! Good luck in the contest, though I don't think you'll need it. Love, Nigel
