Songs for the Open Road: Poems of Travel and Adventure (Dover Thrift Editions) - A great collection of poems about traveling. Trains, cars, ships, planes, chariots, and so many other types of vehicles are mentioned in this book. It's got a wide range of topics, such homesickness, life at sea, Greek myths... there's even one poem about fairies! My favorite ones were by Robert Frost and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, but there were so many great authors beside them. By the end of the book you'll be yearning for new places and adventure.
