Wordless Understanding - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

What greater joy could there be
Than when a lad and a lass
Are set to feel that they like
Each other and are joined together
To strengthen each other in all labour
To rest on each other in all sorrows
And to help each other in all pain
And to be one with each other
In silence, wordless understanding?

    ............to a heart so pure and kind welcomes all who knocks and found a dwelling
    place to stay...where wordless understanding is committed

    What greater joy could be there
    when the wordless understanding
    bears a world of understanding
    smiling before you
    with an innocence
    whose essence
    is sweeter than
    the sweetest of the sweetest
    and every maid's wonder
    and every man's plunder...........
