POETRY: Stevie Smith

A salutary lesson - friends take note:

''People who are always praising the past
And especially the times of faith at best
Ought to go and live in the Middle Ages
And be burnt at the stake as witches and sages.''

Stevie Smith (1902-1971), British poet, novelist. The Past, Selected Poems (1962).
