Jenny Kissed Me

Tonight's selection is a simple, adorable classic.
Jenny Kissed Me
Jenny 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,
Say that health and wealth have missed me,
Say I'm growing old, but add,
Jenny kissed me.
~ Leigh Hunt (1784 - 1859)
I also like this YouTube clip of the same poem. Brief and sweet, like the poem itself.
