My favorite poem (in my pocket right now) is Emily Dickinson’s famous “I’m Nobody”

I’m Nobody! Who Are you?

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!

Emily Dickinson
