Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

I happened to stay close to my husband!


Before you scorn me, my friend,
that I am leaving the most respected
father, mother, friends and big bungalow,
living in a small house of a simple person;

You must know,
since it is a small house,
I happened to stay close to him;

Because of the poverty,
I can take care of his needs
all by my hands; This is great for me!

The bigger house and wealth
made my father and mother,
being far away from each other
and of no use of living together!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'I happened to stay close to my husband! ' is a gist of one of the poems by Mayuram Vedhanayakam Pillai regarding 'Nature of husband and wife! '

இணைபிரியாது இருக்க நல்கும் இடம்பொருள் பேரின்பே

ஏந்தலாந் தந்தைத்தாய் சகியர்கோ யிலைவிட்டோ
ரெளியர் சிற்றில்
சார்ந்தனனென் றிகழுமின்னே சிற்றில்லா லவரருகே
தங்கப் பெற்றேன்
சேர்ந்தமிடி யாலவர்தம் பணியாவும் என்கையாற்
செய்யப் பெற்றேன்
பாந்தவமீ தின்றியெந்தை அன்னையைவே றாக்குநிதி
பாழ்த்த தன்றோ.14

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

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,
