It Is Unpleasant For A Poet If He Leaves Without Singing Poetry! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

The aptitude of charitable mentality of the person
…who doesn't have enough wealth is unpleasant!

Getting the stone-like hard crack nut feeling
…while biting the betel nut is unpleasant!

Sending off a poet without pleasing and offering him
…the due gifts and presents is unpleasant!

It is unpleasant for a poet if he leaves,
- in case of any hurdles -
without singing poetry in favor of the king!

கொடுக்கும் பொருளில்லான் வள்ளன்மை யின்னா
கடித்தமைந்த பாக்கினுட் கற்படுத லின்னா
