Emily Dickinson on Books

“The dearest ones of time, the strongest friends of the soul--BOOKS.” -  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 the Human Soul –
