Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part One: Life

XCIX


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        5
  Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
  That bears a human soul!
