To Instruct By Signs (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
1271.Though you hide it, disdaining your controls,
Your black dyed eyes seem to tell something.
1272.Her beauty fills my eyes, shoulders bow like the bamboo
And her womanly simplicity abounds in excess.
1273.As the thread is seen passing through the crystal beds
Some thought silent gleams in her beauty.
1274.As fragrance is packed in the matured buds
Something lies hidden in this damsel’s smile.
1275.A cure for my intense pain lies
In the secret wiles of the armlets decked damsel.
1276.His lovely embrace and desired union seem to foretell
The loveless, agonizing separation.
1277.My sliding bangles knew before the severance of my lord
Who owns the cool, beautiful seashore.
1278.My lover left me but yesterday
For seven days my body undergoes change of complexion.
1279.She looked at her bangles, tender shoulders and her feet
to show her signs of coming with me.
1280.They say it is excellence of womanhood to tell by eyes
of their love-sickness and begging for the stay at night.
