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!

Probably not her most famous, but it makes me happy.

Took me a few seconds to get past that first line, a frigate? A strange comparison to make, but the sentiment is of course lovely.
