A Blind Love - Poem by Samanyan Lakshminarayanan

[a translation from a tamil film song... edhu irava pagala
every first line is a question from a blind girl
her lover boy answers them]


is it night or day
are you the sun or moon

is this a garden or a palace
are you a flower or painting

is the parrot the most beautiful here
you are the most beautiful here

are the clouds and lightning not closer to us
are you not aware of the string of flowers
laid in your lovely logs of hair

is this world a place very big
no..our love is much bigger

    I always like Tamil lyrics, especially those of Kannadasan. This is a great piece and a very good translation. (Report) Reply

    love is blind in all, in its actions...but in its feel it isn't...be one blind or not...
