Excerpt Tuesday – I’m Nobody – Dickinson

 

Nobody_DickinsonIII’m nobody! Who are you?

Are you nobody, too?

~ Emily Dickinson

(1830 – 1886)

“I’m Nobody! Who are you?” was the very first Emily Dickinson poem I can remember reading –  I was in elementary school and I found it in an old tattered paperback of Dickinson poems on a shelf at my grandmother’s house. It was first published in 1891 and has gone on to be one of her most popular and enduring poems. Read all eight lines of this short poem here. Drawing (charcoal on paper), stitching (sewing into paper is harder than I thought it would be!), and composition by me.
