Little Aglae

Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)

To Her Father, on Her Statue Being Called Like Her

FATHER! the little girl we see

Is not, I fancy, so like me;

You never hold her on your knee.

When she came home, the other day,

You kiss’d her; but I cannot say

She kiss’d you first and ran away.
