Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Learning Turns To Be Very Pleasant And Blessing!

As and when you commence learning,
You may find it difficult and distressing,

Later, the education kills the ignorance,
results in broadening the knowledge,

makes you fruitfully more pleasurable!
Whereas the boundless lust used to be

initially pleasurable and lasts for a short while,
O’ girl! later the agony it results is extreme!

In short, the learning is a woe in the beginning,
Later it turns to be very pleasant and blessing!

Boundless lust is pleasurable in the beginning,
Later it results in agony and most annoying!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'Learning turns to be very pleasant and blessing! ' is a translation of a poem from Tamil literature 'niithineRi viLakkam'

தொடங்குங்காற் றுன்பமா யின்பம் பயக்கும்
மடங்கொன்றறிவகற்றுங் கல்வி - நெடுங்காமம்
முற்பயக்குஞ் சின்னீர வின்பத்தின் முற்றிழாய்
பிற்பயக்கும் பீழை பெரிது. (2) நீதிநெறி விளக்கம்

    Two things compared at a time. Both learning and boundless lust, both starts in a opposite way and both ends also in a opposite way. Beautiful write. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
