Writer Wednesday and Emily Dickinson's Book

It's time for Writer Wednesday, when I discuss another author and his or her work. Today, I'd like to share with you a poem by Emily Dickinson. It's short, only eight lines, but perfectly shows the transporting power of the word, the illustrative properties of a few constructed lines and the magic of literature.

A Book

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! 

My best to you all,
