The bliss to be beloved by those they love who gains,
Of love the stoneless, luscious fruit obtains
The women who are beloved by those whom they love, have they have not got the stone-less fruit of sexual delight ?.
Thaamveezhvaar Thamveezhap Petravar Petraare
Kaamaththuk Kaazhil Kani.
As heaven on living men showers blessings from above,
Is tender grace by lovers shown to those they love
The bestowal of love by the beloved on those who love them is like the rain raining (at the proper season) on those who live by it.
Vaazhvaarkku Vaanam Payandhatraal Veezhvaarkku
Veezhvaar Ala? Kkum Ali.
Who love and are beloved to them alone
Belongs the boast, 'We've made life's very joys our own.'
The pride that says "we shall live" suits only those who are loved by their beloved (husbands).
Veezhunar Veezhap Patuvaarkku Amaiyume
Vaazhunam Ennum Serukku.
Those well-beloved will luckless prove,
Unless beloved by those they love
Even those who are esteemed (by other women) are devoid of excellence, if they are not loved by their beloved.
Veezhap Patuvaar Kezheeiyilar Thaamveezhvaar
Veezhap Pataaar Enin.
From him I love to me what gain can be,
Unless, as I love him, he loveth me
He who is beloved by me, what will he do to me, if I am not beloved by him ?.
Naamkaadhal Kontaar Namakkevan Seypavo
Thaamkaadhal Kollaak Katai.
Love on one side is bad; like balanced load
By porter borne, love on both sides is good
Lust, like the weight of the KAVADI, pains if it lies in one end only but pleases if it is in both.
Orudhalaiyaan Innaadhu Kaamamkaap Pola
Irudhalai Yaanum Inidhu.
While Kaman rushes straight at me alone,
Is all my pain and wasting grief unknown
Would not cupid who abides and contends in one party (only) witness the pain and sorrow (in that party)?.
Paruvaralum Paidhalum Kaanaankol Kaaman
Oruvarkan Nindrozhuku Vaan.
Who hear from lover's lips no pleasant word from day to day,
Yet in the world live out their life,- no braver souls than they
There is no one in the world so hard-hearted as those who can live without receiving (even) a kind word from their beloved.
Veezhvaarin Insol Peraaadhu Ulakaththu
Vaazhvaarin Vankanaar Il.
Though he my heart desires no grace accords to me,
Yet every accent of his voice is melody
145 Though my beloved bestows no love on one, still are his words sweet to my ears.
Nasaiiyaar Nalkaar Eninum Avarmaattu
Isaiyum Iniya Sevikku.
Tell him thy pain that loves not thee?
Farewell, my soul, fill up the sea
Live, O my soul, would you who relate your great sorrow to strangers, try rather to fill up your own sea (of sorrow).
Uraaarkku Urunoi Uraippaai Katalaich
Cheraaaai Vaazhiya Nenju.
