Thiruvalluvar's Couplets On 'Rejoicing In The Embrace' - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
1101. All the pleasures of the five senses,
abound in that bright bangled damsel.
1102. Ills have different pills. For the pangs of love made,
the jewelled maid herself is the cause and cure.
1103. The world of the Lotus-eyed Lord is not so sweet
as the repose in the tender arms of the beloved.
1104. Afar it burns but near cools the pain.
Where did she get this wondrous fire?
1105. The arms of my flower-decked maid gives pleasure,
as some things recalled delight every time.
1106. Her arms are ambrosia-made. When I embrace her,
my withered life puts forth its buds again.
1107. The joy in feeding the needy from one’s own house,
the embrace of the golden maid, gives.
1108. An air-tight hug sweetens
the embrace of the lovers.
1109. Sulking, resilience and reunion are the fruits
those in wedded life obtain.
1110. The more men learn of love, the more ignorant they are,
So does repeated embrace with the beloved create desires more.
