Thiruvalluvar's Couplets on ' The Pleasures of Sulkiness'


1321. Though he is faultless, his lovely embrace has the power
my feigning sulk, to brace.
1322. His love may seem to fade due to my sullen rigour
but it will bloom again with renewed vigour.
1323. Is there a world pleasing like the lovers' feigned ire
who hug like the fusing land and water in sensual fire?
1324. Even after his warm embrace continues my sham tiff,
where lies the arms to break my heart stiff.
1325. There is pleasure for the faultless men to be off
the slender shoulders of the pretending maid who doesn’t laugh.
1326. Better to digest the food taken than eating more and more.
Feigned anger is sweeter than the unsurfeiting union sore.
1327. He who loses in sham ire does truly win.
This truth is proved when they tie together in pleasure bin.
1328. Will I once more through her feigned dislike get
the pleasure enjoyed, with her forehead to sweat?
1329. Let the bright jewelled mine anger feign.
Pleading I'll be to hug her and prolonging the night's reign.
1330. Feigning anger yields delight to love that melds.
Later sweaty union, to add joy to anger, both of them, welds.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
