The Scent Of His Ladylove's Hairlock - Poem by Ramesh Iyengar

‘ The scent of his ladylove’s hairlock ’

‘….. Dear little wasp,
You who visits numerous blossoms !
Speak !
Speak without favour
or personal fervour.
As thou hast visited countless flowers,
know you all the
sweet aroma and scent.
Wherefore I ask you,
have you seen any flower,
that issue forth
sweet smell in same measure,
as that issue forth
from the hair of my ladylove,
who resembles peacock in appearance
and charm as that of white flowers?

- Tamil poet Irayanaar.
(Translated from the Tamil classical poetry :
Kurunthogai – Kurinjiththogai)
