Taper (6)

Ross

I think it could be either:

candle

narrow

'taper' is the definition.
(I know that taper can be written as candle)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for candle that I've seen before include "Wax light source" , "Measurement of light" , "Means of illumination" , "It's better to light one than curse the darkness, it's said" , "Old form of illumination" .)

I've seen this clue in The Irish Independent and the Evening Standard.
