'I'm Nobody1 Who are you?'

Im 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!

This poem resembles her life style. By the 1860s, she was in total physical isolation from the outside world. For at least thirty years she was isolated.

This means in her poem above, She was a nobody and she does not like being know by the public.
