Poem in the H. G. Wells Collection

We are currently cataloguing the H. G. Wells Collection here at Senate House – a collection of editions of works by H. G. Wells put together by the Library and by the H. G. Wells Society, which received a welcome injection of books from the Society earlier this year. We came across this manuscript poem in Tono Bungay (1909). The unexpected finding personalising the volume amused us, if also bemusing us for its apparent lack of relationship with the content. We couldn’t trace any reference to the poem’s author, not being sure of the surname’s spelling. Could somebody help?
