“There is no Frigate like a Book” – Emily Dickinson

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
