The smile of our Kannamma is a flower rose,
The eyes of our Kannamma are the Indra neela (blue lotus)flowers,
The face of our Kannamma is a red lotus,
The forehead of our Kannamma is a young sun.
1.The prettiness of our Kannamma is like lightning,
The eye brows of our Kannamma are the bows of love God,
Her braid is like the snake covering the moon
And her nose is like the flower of Gingelly.
2.Her auspicious words are the fountain of everlasting joy,
Her sweet mouth is nectar, Her lips are nectar,
Her musical soft voice is like Veena of Saraswathi,
She is a painted deva maiden and is the clever Indrani.
3.Her two ears are the pleasing and merging notes of music,
Her conch like neck are the joining of nectar,
The Goddess Parvathi lives in her auspicious hands,
Her belly is like a banyan leaf and ,
Her Stomach is the house of nectar.
4.She is the square formed by the feet of Nandi which carries Shiva,
The seat of Lakshmi is the lotus,
The music that ebbs out of her will flow everywhere,
And her body is like the new love and wisdom.
