Mondays poems

A Book
By: Emily Dickinson

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!


I really like this poem. =)

How true, books take us lands away. What an amazing journey they offer, in the comfort of our own homes ...
