Here is the first poem for the enjoyment of read-a-thon readers and lovers of reading everywhere. (source)
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 –
by Emily Dickinson
I love this poem, so perfect!
Emily is so right.
Dickinson is one of my favourite poets. Her style is unique. And how true this is.
Ah, Emily Dickinson! One of my favorites! I’ve posted that poem and a few others of hers. Thanks for posting it so I could stumble across it and read it yet again.
