Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural – 1216

If only there was nothing called reality, my lover,
who’s in my dreams, will never leave me.

நனவு என ஒன்று இல்லைஆயின், கனவினான்
காதலர் நீங்கலர்மன்.

She lives with him in her dreams. But when she wakes up, she find that he is not there. So she hates the reality that is snatching him away from her.

நனவு – reality
