What Is This You Don't Go To The Temple Of My Lord And Pray Him? - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

The youngness is like an air bubble in the water
..That disappears as quickly as possible

The extensive wealth is like long rolling waves
..That may come and go and does not persist forever!

The physical body is like the letter written on the water,
..It will not stay at all and swiftly go off like a dream!

So, my dear friends! What is this you don't
..go to the temple of My Lord and pray him?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'What is this you don't go to the temple of My Lord and pray him? ' is a translation by me of a poem from Tamil literature 'niithineRi viLakkam'

காப்பு - கடவுள் வாழ்த்து

நீரில் குமிழி இளமை, நிறைசெல்வம்
நீரில் சுருட்டும் நெடுந்திரைகள் - நீரில்
எழுத்(து) ஆகும் யாக்கை, நமரங்காள் என்னே
வழுத்தாத(து) எம்பிரான் மன்று. - நீதிநெறி விளக்கம்
