Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Kalingathup Parani – 30

On budding bosom where pearl necklace rests,
Women who wear your entwined lover’s
teeth marks like a coral necklace,
Open your adorned doors.

முத்து வடஞ்சேர் முகிழ்முலைமேல்
முயங்குங் கொழுநர் மணிச்செவ்வாய்
வைத்த பவள வடம்புனைவீர்
மணிப்பொற் கபாடம் திறமினோ.

Kalingathup Parani 30. The poet calls for women,resting after a night of passion, to open their doors to hear the valor of their chief.
