Description: Sheet music for "By What Lost Campfire," for mezzo soprano. The poem is written by Arthur Sampley and the music is by George Minter. The lyrics are "By what lost camp fire/ what lone height did deserts streching [sic] far, what/ comrades faces framed in light guide western star./ Up slopes I shall not/ climb again down trails the grasses hide, past/ camps where sleeping friends have lain too late to/ ride. to one dark peak a-/ gainst the sky on which the faint trail ends./ guide star and camp fire till I spy those fire lit friends."
