Velavane unai thedi
Ghanam Krishna Iyer
Velavane unai thedi oru madanthai ,
Vidiyum alavum kathirukka vagai yenna?
Valibamum, chel vizhiyum , vil puruvamum ,
Vadivil nool idayum , madhi vadanamum,
Melum avan meni pagam ponnirame,
Minnar kodi pol , anna nadayil oyilagave.
Vidham vidhamaga pachilam tengu meedhinile,
Ven apani tharithu pal varisayum,
Kadalithalum adara kkani shorukkazhagum,
Karuttai urukka kala kala yena nadayil vandu.
Oh Subrahmanya, what is the reason for a lady,
To wait for you till day break?
She is with youth , pretty eyes , bow like eye lines,
In form she has thread like middle and moon like face,
Also her body colour is the colour of Gold,
And she is like a streak of lightning and walks like a swan.
On the young coconut tree , wearing different types,
Of white cloths , with pretty row of teeth,
Biting in to her fruity lips , with pretty tuck in,
She has come near the door with loud laughter on the gate.
