Kuruntokai: Poem 3

Kurinji

Vaster than the earth, loftier than the heavens
And deeper than the ocean is my kinship
With the chief of a hilly domain
Where the bees store abundant honey,
Having buzzed the dark-stalked kurinci flowers!

(Poet- Tevakulattar)
– Translation by A. Dakshinamurthy

நிலத்தினும் பெரிதே வானினும் உயர்ந்தன்று
நீரினும் ஆரள வின்றே சாரல்
கருங்கோற் குறிஞ்சிப் பூக்கொண்டு
பெருந்தேன் இழைக்கும் நாடனொடு நட்பே.
-தேவகுலத்தார்.
