I Live, And Learn - Poem by Daniel Trevelyn Joseph

From Tamilnadu and Chennai
And proud of Tamil Literature
Temples etc, and yet didn't know this.

Been to Mylapore and bought things
At Ramakrishna Matt religious books
And to meet Malini whose house is there.

Only when I read the article in ToI
Today in Speaking Tree Supplement
I knew that Siva made Parvati a peahen.

Even now around Kapaleeshwar temple
Peacock hang around, not for worship,
Though Parvati has not got her old shape.

Been twice to the Temple but could not enter
For timing was wrong, and the I did not know
That Mayil in Tamil had got the place the name!
