The Poem in My Pocket


There is no frigate like a book
to take us ands 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!

Emily Dickinson 

Okay, there was really more than one poem in my pocket, but this is the one I shared with my students!
