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
miss'd me,
Say I'm growing old, but
add,
Jenny
kiss'd me.

To the Virgins,
to Make Much of Time
Robert Herrick

Gather ye rose-buds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-
flying;
And this same flower that smiles
today
Tomorrow will be
dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the
sun,
The higher he's a-
getting,
The sooner will his race be
run,
And nearer he's to
setting.

That age is best which is the
first,
When youth and blood are
warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and
worst
Times still succeed the
former.

Then be not coy, but use your
time,
And while ye may, go
marry;
For having lost but once your
prime,
You may forever
tarry.

The Lake Isle of Innisfree
William Butler Yeats

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.
