Vlog & Video: Out In The Wild

September has come and gone, and summer has given way to fall.  And so I’m making use of what good weather I still have left by taking The ZS Roe Vlog outdoors.  Two weeks ago, I recommended Laurie Halse Anderson’s novel Speak.  This week, I look back at the poetry of Emily Dickinson.

For newcomers unfamiliar with this project, The ZS Roe Vlog is my place to share the best in storytelling.  Every two weeks I’ll recommend a novel, short story, poem, or film, and bring you along to the places in which these stories have particular significance.  Also, I encourage you to leave a comment and share a favourite story of your own, be it personal or fictional.

So, without further adieu, I give you:

Out In The Wild With Emily Dickinson

The poetry of Emily Dickinson

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!

Vlog & Video is a rotating segment where I post a new Vlog for two weeks of every month; during the other two weeks, I post and comment on my favourite videos from around the web.  Please leave a comment or question—all opinions are welcome, and all contributions are greatly appreciated.
