Poetry Sunday: A Book by Emily Dickinson

This one is short and sweet and to the point. Emily Dickinson did not mince words!

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!

(Note to readers: My Bloom Day post will be published later today.)


  1. In all of human history perhaps books are the sweetest invention of all!

  2. The right to read is one of our most cherished rights. Emily Dickinson was 100% right!

  3. That first line says it all! :D

    1. Emily did have the knack for expressing truths in few words.
