I see lots of recordings of this but no lyrics. There is a poem at one of the links, but I don't know if that is the right one.

BIRD SONGS AT EVENTIDE
Words, 'Royden Barrie' (Rodney Richard Bennett). Music, Eric Coates.
New York: Chappell & Co., Inc., 1926.

Over the quiet hills
Slowly the shadows fall;
Far down the echoing vale
Birds softly call;
Slowly the golden sun
Sinks in the dreaming West;
Bird songs at eventide
Call me to rest.

Love, though the hours of day
Sadness of heart may bring,
When twilight comes again
Sorrows take wing;
For when the dusk of dreams
Comes with the falling dew,
Bird songs at eventide
Call me to you.

Thanks for posting. It's weird that this song is considered a classic and no one remembers to add the lyrics.
