There is no Frigate like a Book

There is no Frigate like a Book

  

by Emily Dickinson

There is no Frigate like a Book: Text of the Poem

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.
