A Wife Beautifies Herself For Her Husband To See! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Eating, wearing flowers, delight in heart
and beautifying are all only for him, to see!

O' my friend! While knowing that in spite
of my husband had left me for earning sake,

you had come to beautify me,
Is it not your ignorance?

(him - husband)
(accompanying maid or friend helps in beautifying the girl)

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'A wife beautifies herself for her husband to see! ' is a translation of a poem of Poet Mayuram Vedhanayakam Pillai.

காரிகை செய் அழகெலாம் கணவன் கண்டு உவக்க மட்டுமே

கலி விருத்தம்

உண்ணல்பூச் சூடனெஞ் சுவத்த லொப்பனை
பண்ணலெல் லாமவர் பார்க்க வேயன்றோ
அண்ணறன் பிரிவினை யறிந்துந் தோழிநீ
மண்ணவந் தனையிது மடமை யாகுமே.16

- மாயூரம் வேதநாயகம் பிள்ளை
