There Is No Frigate Like A Book
Emily Dickinson (1830–86). Complete Poems. 1924.
Part One: Life
THERE is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul.
