Love Outlive Lust - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Love for a girl does not infringe
The love one has for one’s mother.
Desire for a woman does not spoil
The love one has for one’s wife.
Love for mother from the umbilical cord.
Love for wife from the fusion gametes.
They are not extinguishable, and will stay.

Covalan at last returned to Kannaki,
Winsome Madhavi abandoned.
