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 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!

The Brothers Grimm, The Frog Prince

The Frog Prince illustration is from the fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm.
