Jenny Kiss’d Me When We Met
By James Henry Leigh Hunt
JENNY kiss’d me when we met,
  Jumping from the chair she sat in;
Time, you thief! who love to get
  Sweets into your list, put that in.
Say I’m weary, say I’m sad;        5
  Say that health and wealth have miss’d me;
Say I’m growing old, but add—
                Jenny kiss’d me!
