A Book

April is National Poetry Month.

This is the last Saturday in April so it is also the last poem I will be posting in honor of National Poetry Month. It has been fun! The other poems I have posted are as follows:

April 3 - The Lamb by William Blake

April 10 - The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

April 17 - How Do I Love Thee by Elizabeth Barrett Browning


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!
