Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Kamba Ramayanam – 56

Drenched in water,buffaloes wander
like dark clouds on paddy fields;
As they think of calves at home,
their soft udder gushes; grains thrive

ஈர நீர் படிந்து இந் நிலத்தே சில
கார்கள் என்ன வரும் கருமேதிகள்
ஊரில் நின்ற கன்று உள்ளிட மென்முலை
தாரை கொள்ளத் தழைப்பன சாலியே.

This is relatively young,just 1000 years old From Kamba Ramayanam,about Kosala country’s wealth. Paddy isn’t just watered, but grows in milk.
