Inscription(s)

Kaunas - Maironis mauzoliejus prelatas
dr. JONAS MAČIULIS-
MAIRONIS
1862-1932

- kaip man gaila to balto senelio,
kurs, užstojęs ant amžino kelio,
jau nebkelsis ant balso varpų
ir, ant kelių ainius pasodinęs,
nebepasakos bočius atminęs,
nepratars iš šaltųjų kapų!

The text is one of the strophes of Maironis' poem Raseinių Magdė.
