Penury During One’s Youthful Days! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

While a person has to meet with penury
during his youthful days, it results in hardships many!

During elderly age which usually leads to misery,
even the pleasant things also can lead to agony!

Those things are alike the flowers bloom on a day
untimely to wear on the hair on a suitable day,

and also alike the beauty
of a damsel who lost her husband to enjoy!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'Penury during one’s youthful days! ' is a translation of a poem from Tamil literature 'moothurai'

இளமையில் வறுமை

இன்னா இளமை வறுமைவந் தெய்தியக்கால்
இன்னா அளவி லினியவும் - இன்னாத
நாளல்லா நாட்பூத்த நன்மலரும் போலுமே
ஆளில்லா மங்கைக் கழகு.3 – மூதுரை
