Penury During One’s Youthful Days!

While a person has to meet with penury
during his youthful days, it results in hardships many!

During elderly age which usually leads to misery,
even the pleasant things also can lead to agony!

Those things are alike the flowers bloom on a day
untimely to wear on the hair on a suitable day,

and also alike the beauty
of a damsel who lost her husband to enjoy!

இளமையில் வறுமை

இன்னா இளமை வறுமைவந் தெய்தியக்கால்

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
