Poems of Love and War original verse by Milaipperun Kantan, Kuruntokai 234 [Poetry]
Translation by Shri. A.K. Ramanujan, Poems of Love and War
original verse by Milaipperun Kantan, Kuruntokai 234.
Only the dim-witted say it’s evening
when the sun goes down
and the sky reddens,
when misery deepens,
and the mullai begins to bloomin the dusk.
But even when the tufted cock
calls in the long city
and the long night
breaks into dawn,
it is the evening:
to one who has no one.
