Ainkurunooru – 418
Are you a celestial nymph
in the forest drenched by incessant rains
that quench a skylark’s thirst,
oh,fine bosomed girl embracing me?
வானம் பாடி வறங்களைந் தானா
தழிதுளி தலைஇய புறவிற் காண்வர
வானர மகளோ நீயே
மாண்முலை யடைய முயங்கி யோயே.
Poem 418, Ainkuru Nooru. He’s waiting for her outside the town. She’s late. Finally she comes through the forest to meet him. She looks like a celestial nymph in the forest. Sky lark sings when thirsty and rain pours. Her arrival is like that to his parched love.
