No Frigate Like a Book

If you are a reader, then Emily Dickinson’s words will resonate with you.  Waltke quotes it in his Old Testament Theology.

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!
