Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

To buy peace


I don’t find a charming woman
Who’s equally a warming one.
I don’t find a domineering one
Who’s as well a feminine one.
Women of intelligence too
Are found far from amenable;
Women of wealthy parents
Are found wanting compassion.
I was settled with a woman,
Who’s none of these, and bought peace.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

Far south the lift,
