Saturday Poetry

There Is No Frigate Like a Book

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 the Human soul. 

Emily Dickinson, c.1873

I've always been a reader and usually have more than one book in progress at any one time.  How much richer our lives are through books!
