Rondeau

Original Text: 
Monthly Chronicle (London: Longman, 1838). AP M664 MICR mfm Robarts Library
2    Jumping from the chair she sat in;
3Time, you thief, who love to get
4    Sweets into your list, put that in:
5Say I'm weary, say I'm sad,
6    Say that health and wealth have missed me,
7Say I'm growing old, but add,
8    Jenny kissed me.
