Kurunthokai Poem 311

குறுந்தொகை – பாடல் 311

My friend!

There is chance none for the slander to cease

Whether I had seen or not

The dinsome chariot which fled non-stop,

Despite the control of the charioteer,

Our friends who plucked the blooms,

Glittering and pollen-rich

Of the punnai trees thriving on high white sand dunes

With low-hanging boughs, during mid-day

Had seen it when it fled through

The sinking ford of the vast sea.

Poet – Centan Kiran

Translated by A.Dakshinamurthy.
