Just a Song At Twiligiht (fragment)

Parlour song

When twilight shadows softly fall and sinks the sun to rest
Fond memory my thoughts recall of days I loved the best

'Tis then my honey sings to me the songs of "Auld Lang Syne"
An angel's voice I seem to hear in melody divine

Just a song at twilight when the lights are low
And the flickering shadows softly come and go .
