No. 6 — DUET (Reprise)
Midi Symbol MIDI File [8KB, 1' 32"]

(Amandus and Amanda move off slowly, singing the refrain of the duet.)

Mem'ries, old mem'ries, sadly sweet are ye;
  Painful, yet precious, we keep you long in store;

(A sound of scuffling feet is heard near the pond, and Piscator rushes in, in ecstasy,
with a fine carp struggling in his landing-net.
)

PISCATOR (joyfully). His hour has come at last. He's mine! He's mine!
  Young man, the pool is at your service now!
(He looks up, and sees Amandus and Amanda standing in affectionate attitudes
upon the bridge.
)
  What do I see? No! Yes!

(The singing continues)

Bringing back the summer when summer-time is o'er.

PISCATOR (sinking on seat, and holding his sides.) Ha, ha, ha, ha!
