TO SEVERAL OBLIGING MARRIED COUPLES
WHO HAVE POSED
FOR SOME OF THESE PORTRAITS
Don't be ashamed to let us know
Why you tried matrimony,
For others brave the under-tow
For reasons quite as funny;
We give these little facts away,
Perhaps it is a treason,
Don't marry in an off-hand way,
Be sure "there's a reason!"
