musical score description
[First Voice]O! Call my brother back to meI can not play aloneThe summer comes with flow'r and beeWhere is my brother goneOh! Where is my brother gone?The butterfly is glancing brightAcross the sun beam's trackI care not now to chase it's flightOh! Call my brother back Oh call my brother oh call my brother[Second Voice]He would not hear my voice, fair ChildHe may not come to theeThe face that once like springtime smiledOn earth no more shal't seeA roses brief bright life of joySuch unto him was givenGo! Thou must play alone, my boyThy brother is in HeavenAnd has he left his birds and flowers?And must I call in vain?And through the long, long summer hoursWill he not come again?And by the brook and in the gladeAre all our wand'rings o'er?Oh! While my brother with me playedWould I had loved him more!Would I have loved him more!
