POEM OF THE DAY: A Terrible Infant

by Frederick Locker-Lampson (1821 – 1895).

A Terrible Infant

I recollect a nurse called Ann,
Who carried me about the grass.
And one fine day a fine young man
Came up, and kissed the pretty lass:
She did not make the least objection!
Thinks I, “Aha!
When I can talk, I’ll tell Mamma.”
–And that’s my earliest recollection.
