Misty

Johnny, where are you?
Here. Look at me.
Are you okay?
I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree.
I’ll get you down.
And I feel like I’m clinging to a cloud,
I can’t understand. Are you up there?
Yes, I get misty up here.
I’ll help you down holding your hand. Then walk my way.
Wait, I hear a thousand violins begin to play.
Hello-ooo? Stop that!
Or it might just be the sound of your hello that music that I hear.
You’ve been up that tree too long
I get misty the moment you’re near.
Aw, Johnny….

And so the song Misty was born

MISTY

As performed by Johnny Mathis)

Look at me,
I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I’m clinging to a cloud
I can’t understand,
I get misty, holding your hand.

Walk my way,
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear,
I get misty the moment you’re near

You can say that you’re leading me on
But it’s just what I want you to do
Don’t you realize how hopelessly I’m lost
That’s why I’m following you.

On my own,
Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left,
My hat from my glove,
I get misty, and too much in love.
I’m too misty, and too much in love

  1. Clever and beautiful the way you worked “Misty” into your poem…Beware…Let’s hope no one turns you in to BMI or ASCAP because you will receive a nice bill in the mail…Pay a royalty or else…!!

Have some fun...
