Poem by Christian Milne
To a Lady Who Said It Was Sinful to Read Novels
To love these books, and harmless tea, Has always been my foible, Yet will I neТer forgetful be To read my Psalms and Bible. Travels I like, and history too, Or entertaining fiction; Novels and plays IТd have a few, If sense and proper diction. I love a natural harmless song, But I cannot sing like Handel; Deprived of such resource, the tongue Is sure employed Ч in scandal.
