Palatial house without a lovable and virtuous wife! Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan


Beautiful clouds hovering in the sky,
Above the high roofed rich palace by,
With respectable, safe and strong fort around,
Extremely decorated, well illuminated
And glittering with lights!

What is the use?
If the man who lives there
Has no lovable and virtuous wife
To maintain that palatial house!

In such a case,
The palatial house appears
Like a wild, dense forest,
That can’t be seen by the eyes!

Maintaining such a house
Without a virtuous housewife
Will be devoid of good people,
Children, guests and relatives,
Yes! It is nothing but a forest!
