A Book

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!

Good take on a view of death.. always have hope!
Helps me so very much in my sorrow
One of the most capturing and substanceful works I have seen on this site since Michael Shepherd and Herbert Nehrlich....[FjR-2020]
This poem of death is like life all around us.
