Kuin hiipuva hiillos tummentuu

Language: Finnish (Suomi)

Kuin hiipuva hiillos tummentuu,
kun tuli sen tuhkaksi söi.
Kuin iltakellon helkähdys haipuu
pois, kun se kerran viimeisen löi.
Niin kerran kait ne taistotkin tummuu
pois, jotka tunnetta tulena söi.
Ja se sydän niin hiljaan sammahtaa,
joka liekitsiliioin ja löi.
