Description: Inspiration for this painting came from the poem 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 the Human soul."
