Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural – 1101

Pleasure of all five senses – sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch-
reside together in this girl with shiny bangles.

கண்டு, கேட்டு, உண்டு, உயிர்த்து, உற்று, அறியும் ஐம்புலனும்
ஒண்டொடிகண்ணே உள.

The pleasure of all five senses reside together in this girl. She pleases me completely.

ஒண்டொடி – ஒண் + தொடி – shiny bangle
