LEAP YEAR EPISODE.
Can I forget that winter night
In eighteen eighty-four,
When Nellie, charming little i
Came tappir.g at the door.?
"'Good-eyening, wriss," I bliulhIId
For in my head i nv
And knowing, hung tmy
That Nellie cameto y v
Sb e clasped my big red hand, artn fei
Adown upon her knees,
And cried: "You know I love you well,
So be my husband, p)ease !
And then she swore she'd ever he
A tender wife and true
Ah, what delight it was to me
kThat Nellie came to woo
She'd lace my shoes and darn my hose
And mendl my shirts, she said,
Anitd grease Imly comel0y RIomn1Ii nose
Each night on going to bed ;
She'd build the fires and fetch the coal,
And split. the kindling too
Love's perjuries o'erwhelimed lie sol
When Nellie came to woo.
And as I, blushing, gave no cheek
To her advaunces rash,
She twined her arms about my oeck,
And toyed with my mustache;
And then she pleaded for a kiss,
While I.- what could I do
int coyly yield to that bliss
When Nellie caume to woo?
I am eiigaged, and prondly wear
A gorgeous dianond ring,
And I shall wed my lover fair
Some time in geitle spring.
I face my doom without a sigh
And so, forsooth, would you.
If you but loved as fond as I,
And Nellie ca(e to'woo.
