O that it were so!

First line:
It sometimes comes into my head
circa 1912
author of text

O that it were so! has a magical opening section, and the composer’s substitution of ‘sometimes’ for the poet’s ‘often’ may well be considered an improvement. The rest of the song is in a more normal romantic style, but the song deserves to regain its one-time popularity.
