There is no frigate like a book 有哪艘帆船像书一样

There is no frigate like a book 有哪艘帆船像书一样

 

There is no frigate like a book

有哪艘帆船像一样

There is no frigate like a book

没有哪艘帆船像书本一样,

To take us lands away,

带我们跨越万水千山,

Nor any coursers like a page

也没有一匹骏马,

Of prancing poetry.

比得上一页欢腾的诗篇。

This traverse may the poorest take

没有旅费的窘迫,

Without oppress of toll;

最穷者也可以跋涉万里;

How frugal is the chariot

承载灵魂的战车,

That bears a human soul!

向来是如此素俭。
