Poems by Emily Dickinson

Heart, we will forget him!
  You and I, to-night!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
  I will forget the light.
 
When you have done, pray tell me,
  That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! least while you're lagging,
  I may remember him!
 
..............................................................................................................................
 
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 deary to be somebody!
  How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
  To an admiring bog!
 
.........................................................................................................................................
 
My river runs to thee:
Blue sea, wilt welcome me?
 
My river waits reply.
Oh sea, look graciously!
 
I'll fetch thee brokks
From spotted nooks,—
 
Say, sea,
Take me!
