*Like a Frog


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

  1. howdy, big frog!!

    great photo – you know, i hear them behind my back yard, but i never see them – thanks, jen!

    1. Isn’t he beautiful? I saw him hopping across the yard as the rain started to fall yesterday. He was quite patient with my photo-snapping!

  2. That is an amazing photo. Until I read the comments, I was wondering if he was real or a lawn decoration. He looks almost too perfect.

  3. Lovely quote! This is great, .. printed it and will save.
    Now a days I have breakfast at a place called “The Lone Wolf” across the street from Emily’s old house pretty regular.
