Treasure Island

Wife Gets Up Early Before The Husband Wakes Up!


If one self’s husband,
Even though he is lame
without fair complexion,
he is equivalent to the son of
Goddess Lakshmi, to the wife!

Even if the other men, who are nearby,
are extremely handsome,
they are equivalent to poison!

The women who have eyes
resembling armaments,
With chastity as ornament,

After the dearest husband
comes, eats the delicious food
and sleeps, she also takes food, sleeps,
gets up early before the husband wakes up,
does all the needy work with desire!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'Wife gets up early before the husband wakes up! ' is a gist of one of the poems by Mayuram Vedhanayakam Pillai regarding 'Nature of husband and wife! '

பின்தூங்கி முன்னுணரும் பெண்ணே பெரும்பொருள்

தந்துணைவர் வடிவிலா முடவரெனி னுந்திருவின்
றனையன் ஒப்பாம்
அந்தமுளார் அயல்குமர ரெனினும்விடம் அனையராம்
அரும ணாளர்
வந்தமுதுண் டுறங்கியபின் தாமுண்டு துயின்று முனம்
வல்லெழுந்து
பந்தமுறுங் கருமமெலா முடிப்பர்கற்பி னணிபூண்ட
படைக்கண் ணாரே.12

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
