Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural – 1164

My passion’s like a sea
But I lack a raft, to cross it safely.

காமக் கடல் மன்னும் உண்டே;அது நீந்தும்
ஏமப் புணை மன்னும் இல்.

Thirukkural 1164. This couplet is him saying how much afflicted with lust he is when she leaves him.
