Here are the Emily Dickinson poems again for reference.

Much Madness is divinest Sense–
To a discerning Eye–
Much Sense–the starkest Madness–
‘Tis the Majority
In this, as All, prevail–
Assent–and you are sane–
Demur–you’re straightway dangerous–
And handled with a Chain–
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 June–
To an admiring Bog!
If I can stop one Heart from breaking
I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one life the Aching
Or cool one Pain
Or help one fainting Robin
Unto his Nest again
I shall not live in Vain.
Fame is a bee
It has a song–
It has a sting–
Ah, too, it has a wing.
