Kurunthokai Poem 93

குறுந்தொகை பாடல் 93

(The heroine refuses to consent to the confidante who comes as a messenger from the hero)

My friend,

We may lose our goodly feminine charm;

The great beauty may fade and cease to be;

We may even lose our sweet life.

Do no utter sympathetic words to him.

Is he not like our father and mother?

To what avail is sulking with such a man

Who is indifferent?

      Poet Allur Nanmullaiyar

      Translated by A.Dakshinamurthy
