Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

A wife beautifies herself for her husband to see!

Eating, wearing flowers, delight in heart
and beautifying are all only for him, to see!

O’ my friend! While knowing that in spite
of my husband had left me for earning sake,

you had come to beautify me,
Is it not your ignorance?

(him - husband)
(accompanying maid or friend helps in beautifying the girl)

அண்ணறன் பிரிவினை யறிந்துந் தோழிநீ
மண்ணவந் தனையிது மடமை யாகுமே.16

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
