Poems of Friendship
“Jenny kissed me”
Leigh Hunt (1784–1859)
 
JENNY 1 kissed 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 missed me;
Say I ’m growing old, but add—
                Jenny kissed me!
 
Note 1. “Jenny” was Mrs. Jane Welsh Carlyle. [back]
