Artist: P. Gordon

Title: Leap Year Resolution

Caption: "Resolved, that I must wed some man by hock or crook the best I can. Should he say nay when I propose, That he share all my joys and woes. I'll simply snuggle up to him, Charr him with hugs til he gives in. Then to make sure that he is all mine I'll sneak him off to some divine. And I guess that will hold him for a while."

Title: A Foregone Conclusion

Caption: "Around the leap year candle, man, The girls now 'flirt' and 'flitter', Each one possessed with longing And attracted by his glitter. Loves passion is the flame which each Is anxious to embrace, But sadly scorched do they emerge From wedlock in a hearse."

Title: Maiden's Leap Year Appeal

Caption: "I'm really shy as I can be
Though I'd dearly love to wed,
And have a man look after me
For it's really fine 'tis said;
So as it's leap year now, dear heart, I'll have courage and just ask,
If you will take me as I am
So in Love's sun I'll bask."
