A Day When The Food Eaten All Alone


A day
when the food eaten all alone
in the absence of the guests,

A night spent
without accompanying and enjoying
the beautifully dressed and well adorned wife,

The entire day passed
without offering what is needed
to the needy and poor;

The above three are considered
as the disease to the learned
and knowledgeable people.

விருந்தின்றி யுண்ட பகலுந் திருத்திழையார்

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
