Jenny kissed me when we met,
Hopping from the seat she sat in;
Time, you cheat, who love to get
Desserts into your rundown, put that in:
Let’s assume I’m tired, say I’m miserable,
Say that wellbeing and abundance have missed me,
Let’s assume I’m becoming old, however add
Jenny kissed me.

Two stories exist. One story is that Leigh Hunt visited the Carlyles to convey the news that he planned to distribute one of Thomas Carlyle’s sonnets. At the point when the news was conveyed to Carlyle’s significant other, Jane, she hopped up and kissed him.
The other story is that during one winter Hunt was wiped out with flu and missing for such a long time that when he at last recuperated and went to visit the Carlyles, Jane hopped up and kissed him when he showed up at the entryway. After two days one of the Hunt workers conveyed a note, tended to, “From Mr. Hunt to Mrs. Carlyle.” It contained the sonnet, “Jenny Kissed Me.”
The subsequent story is the one most frequently rehashed.
Fortunately, Hunt was a shrewd supervisor, on the grounds that in the first draft Jenny was Nelly and “embittered” was utilized rather than “fatigued” in the fifth line.
Supposedly, Leigh Hunt was a coy man, frequently in a tough situation with his significant other. Likewise supposedly, Jane Carlyle was a piece harsh and better known for her corrosive tongue than for indiscreet love.

Lines 2, 4, 6, and 8 are ladylike, assisting with counterbalancing the manly rhymes and assisting with causing the sonnet to feel lighter and more brilliant.
The shrewd consummation of “Jenny Kissed Me” perpetually carries a grin to the peruser’s face.
