Poet's Corner: Rondeau

Rondeau

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.

James Henry Leigh Hunt (1784 – 1859)
