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, 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!

மழைதிளைக்கு மாடமாய் மாண்பமைந்த காப்பாய்
இழைவிளக்கு நின்றமைப்பின் என்னாம்? - விழைதக்க

காண்டற் கரியதோர் காடு.361 நாலடியார் - அதிகாரம்: பன்னெறி
