Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

All other happiness come along with virtue


Luminous rudrakshas
grow in the mountains,

Much delight is borne
by the pleasing words
of the chaste wife / fiancee,

Virtuous qualities
are attained by the
soft nature and grace,

All other happiness
come along with VIRTUE,
resulting in consequence
with the help of his wealth!

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
