Vol. V. Browning to Rupert Brooke
A Reminiscence of Infancy
By Frederick Locker-Lampson (1821–1895)
I RECOLLECT a nurse call’d Ann,
  Who carried me about the grass,
And one fine day a fine young man
  Came up, and kiss’d the pretty Lass:
She did not make the least objection!        5
        Thinks I, “Aha!
When I can talk I’ll tell Mamma.”
—And that’s my earliest recollection.
