Poem: The New Fiction

("LEAVE THEM ALONE," WE SEEM TO HEAR MR. GALSWORTHY SAY
OF HIS YOUNG PEOPLE. —From a Review by Mr. Bettany)

Little Blue-Fits has lost his wits,
And doesn't know where to find them;
Leave them alone and they'll come home,
And leave their tales behind them.

The remarkable tales, with remarkable sales,
And Bonnets and Bees in disorder;
For the Bonnets we view are exceedingly Blue,
And decidedly over the Border.

~G.K. Chesterton
