LOVE IS A MIST.
Copyright, 1891, by Page & Norman.
Poem and Melody by Bert C. Norman.
Arranged by Robert Bloom.
Love is a mist that's encircled us all
At some happy time in our life;
Ah, Paradise is where Its devotees all dwell,
Far distant from dread care and strife.
A maiden so fair, with blue eyes and brown hair,
Attracts a sweetheart to her side;
Then it will not be long, amid kisses And song,
Until he proudly makes her his bride. For-
Love is a mist, aye, a beautiful mist.
That hides every fault from the glance;
And those who have known it all say with a sigh
That it seems like a heavenly trance-seems like a heavenly trance.
But soon the scene changes, the sunshine is gone,
A serpent in Eden is found;
Dread jealousy enters the once pleasant home,
And the picture is dashed to the ground. For-Refrain.
