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)

Hi,

காரிகை செய் அழகெலாம் கணவன் கண்டு உவக்க மட்டுமே

உண்ணல்பூச் சூடனெஞ் சுவத்த லொப்பனை
பண்ணலெல் லாமவர் பார்க்க வேயன்றோ
அண்ணறன் பிரிவினை யறிந்துந் தோழிநீ
மண்ணவந் தனையிது மடமை யாகுமே.16

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
