Kanpadeppo Ten Ayyane
By Ambujam Krishna
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Kanpadheppo yen ayyane, kan kulira naan, yen kali theerave
Maanbudan yen mana kovilil vaithu,
Pan paadi naalum kondaadum naan
Kapi thanukku irangi or kapi thaanai vadaithittai .
abhyam yendru adaintha oor arakkanai,
Kaatil upacharaam ariyen siriyen,
Chei pala apacharam poruthu aatkonda unthanai.
Oh Lord, when would I be able to see you,
With a very pleased eye, till I want.
When will I be able to,
Keep you in the temple of my mind with great respect,
And then sing to you and celebrate that day
Taking pity on a monkey, you killed another monkey,
And when an Asura came to you seeking protection,
And saying, I am a small one and do not know hospitality,
And please pardon my mistakes, you completely made him your own.
