Love outlive lust


Love for a girl does not infringe
The love one has for one’s mother.
Desire for a woman does not spoil
The love one has for one’s wife.
.
Love for mother from the umbilical cord.
Love for wife from the fusion gametes.
They are not extinguishable, and will stay.

Covalan at last returned to Kannaki,
Winsome Madhavi abandoned.
