Leigh Hunt portrait

Jenny Kiss’d Me

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;
Say that health and wealth have missed me;
Say I’m growing old, but add –
Jenny kissed me!
