Expressing To Give Up Shame (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
1131.To those who enjoyed love life and lament it later
Riding on a *horse of Palmyra fronds is no matter.
1132.To endure the passions, my body and soul have no nerve
And so dare to ride a palm-horse mindless of my reserve.
1133.Once I had reticence and manliness in calm
But now I have to ride on a horse of palm.
1134.The raft of modest manliness is swept away
By a shaft of floods of love which holds me sway.
1135.Slender, wreathes-like armlets wearing maid bestowed me
pangs of the even and made me the palm-horse to bestride.
1136.My eyes don’t go to sleep thinking of my lover.
So I want to ride a palm horse even in the midnight.
1137.The glory of the birth of a woman lies in her patience,
though restive in tides of love, rides not the palm-horse.
1138.A woman’s lust rends the veil and longs for courtship but
It isn’t pitiful for the poor man lacking mind-control.
1139.“As I remain calm, no one knows about me”,
Thus thinks her lust, faints and swirls in the street.
1140.As they don’t suffer what we suffered
The fools laugh at us before our eyes.
