Thread Name: Lyr/Origin Req: Twilight Is Stealing / ...Falling
Subject: Twilight is stealing
Does anyone know the origin/full text of a song that begins:

Twilight is stealing over the sea Shadows are falling, dark on the lee Borne on the night wind, voices of yore come from that far-off shore.

My grandmother (born 1901) knew fragments of this; her ancestry included a lot of English ship's captains, but she couldn't say where this was from.
