Tymko (Tomasz) Padura, also Padurra, (Ukrainian: Тимко Падура; 21 December 1801 – 20 September 1871) was a Ukrainian-Polish Romantic poet of the so-called Ukrainian school, musician-torbanist, and composer-songwriter.
Padura's ballad of Ustym Karmaliuk "Beyond Siberia The Sun Rises" (За Сибіром Сонце Сходить) achieved extraordinary popularity in 19th century Ukraine. It became a folk-song. He may also have written the song "Hej Sokoły", which is very popular in both Ukraine and Poland.
