letters from dickinson to frances and louise
TO: Louise and Frances Norcross
. . . I think of your little parlor as the poets once thought of Windermere, - peace, sunshine, and
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!
