Hasty Desire For Reunion (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
1281.Lovers feel delight at the trice of thought
and cheer by sight but toddy drinkers not.
1282.When her lasciviousness ascends as the tall Palmyra
She shouldn’t be sulky even a bit as the millet grain.
1283.Though he is headstrong and abuses me
My heart will have no repose unless I see my spouse.
1284.My friend! I went in feigned scorn from him.
But my heart forgot it and longed to embrace him.
1285.My eyes see not the pencil that puts the eye-liners.
Nor can I see the faults in my spouse when I'm with him.
1286.When I see my spouse, I don’t find his faults.
When I don’t see him, I see nothing but his faults.
1287.They leap into the river knowing well, it carries off.
Why should I feign short-lived anger with my spouse?
1288.O my thief! Though your bosom harmed me, I want it more,
As the toddy makes the drinkers want it more and more.
1289.Love is tender as the blossom.
A few know its beauty and feel the bliss.
1290.She showed feigned anger in her eyes but rushed
To embrace forgetting her anger
