592. Jenny kiss'd Me
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.
