Form rejection: "Thank you for querying me. I want you to know how seriously I take each and every query I receive. There was much to admire in your work, but, unfortunately _TITLE_ is not a fit for my list at this time. I appreciate the time and effort that querying takes, and I hope you keep going. I’m sure you’ll find the perfect place for your work soon!"
