Excerpt

, koski kuohuu.--
Aamulla auringon kimallus.

KALEVA.

Kaleva kuuluisa kuningas
käkesi kosihin käydä
Vuoren mointa morsianta.
Hiiden neiti hiilihapsi
kutoi verkon kutristansa,
silmän-iskuista yliset,
luomen-laskuista aliset,
pani paulat poikki tiestä,
urhon vangitsi valion.

Valitteli valtakunta:
"Kauan on Kaleva poissa."
Etsitähän, kaivatahan.--
Tuop' on kiekui kirkon kukko:
"Kauan on Kaleva maannut
Hiiden vuoren vuotehella,
verkoissa veren väkevän;
pääse ei sieltä päästämättä."

Pyhä Pietari käveli
Herran Kiesuksen keralla,
kukon kuuli kiekuvaksi,
sanoi Herralle hyvälle:
"Viikon on Kaleva vierryt,
auta miestä mielipuolta."

Kolahutti sauvallansa
Herra Hiiden kalliota,
heräsi kuuluisa kuningas.
"Kuulinko. kotimäeltä
karjankellon kaikuvaksi?"
