Tune of the Day: I'd be a Butterfly

arranged for two flutes

This romantic ballad was composed by English poet, dramatist and songwriter Thomas Haynes Bayly.

I'd be a Butterfly born in a bow'er,
Where Roses and lilies and violets meet;
Roving forever from flower to flower,
And kissing all buds that are pretty and sweet.

The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
