There is no Frigate

I chose this Emily Dickinson poem in honor of the titles releasing early next month and September from Abingdon Press Fiction. It's a marvelous, wonderful poem, simple and delightful, deep and smart and clever.

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.

This one's for you Judy, Rita, Kay and Myra and the Abingdon Fiction Team. Glad to be a sister.

Oh, writing sister, what a wonderful sendoff for "Gone to Green" and all the great Abingdon fiction launch books! Thank you so much! Love & prayers, Judy

I continue to pray for your success and that God will give you the desires of your heart. As Agnes would say, "Soli Deo Gloria!"
