There is No Frigate Like a Book

"There is no frigate like a book": a classic poem that appears in many anthologies for young people. A person doesn't have to know what a frigate is, or a courser, to have a pretty good idea what those words mean in the context of the poem. (These days, of course, it often seems there is no frigate like the internet... and that's where some of us find our "prancing poetry".)
