An invitation to sail on the seas of literature: Emily Dickinson’s inspiring poem

Emily Dickinson

“There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry –
This Travel may the poorest take
Without opress of Toll –
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears the Human Soul…”

EMILY DICKINSON (1830-1886)
