Wednesday – Quoteday #5

Jeey, it’s wednesday again! Normally I would post a quote, but today I like to shake things up a little and share a poem with you. This is actually one of my all-time favorite poems by one of my favorite poets. The title is There is no frigate like a book and it’s written 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! 

Sometimes books do feel like vessels that can take you to different places, don’t you think?
