Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural – 1167

I swam the stream of love but unable to find its shore,
at this midnight hour, I’m all alone.

காமக் கடும் புனல் நீந்திக் கரை காணேன்,
யாமத்தும், யானே உளேன்.

He hasn’t come to meet her as promised. So she says I’m unable to bear this burden of passion and am awake at this midnight hour.
