A Book

Rating: 3.5
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!

On poetryfoundation.org the last line uses 'the' human soul. On poets.org it says 'a' human soul. On shmoop.com it uses 'the'. on poemhunter.com it uses 'a'. Which is the real way she wrote it?
