By Oothukadu Venkata Subba Iyer
Avaraga varuvaro, vara maattar,
Ithil adisayam yennadi, Anname, Kannan.
That Krishna would not come by himself.
What is there to wonder here, Oh dear (swan like lady).
Yavarukkum melana innarulalan,
Yamuna vanam pootha in malar thalan,
Bhuvanam mayakkum pullankuzhal isayalan,
Punniyam migundha yengal Radhai manavalan.
The sweet lord of grace who is above all,
The great flower that was flowered by the forest at Yamuna
The songster in flute who attracts the entire world,
The consort of our Radha who is greatly blessed.
Thavam iruntha kaliyan thalai misai irunthu thandavamadina paadham kondu,
Thamala mara nizhal irunthu, yennidam thaniyaga pesi, athai ninaivu kondu,
Kuvalai neela thirumeni kondu andru Govardana, sumanthathu pola indru.
Kuvalaya muzhuthula kavalayai orungu kondu avar ingirunthu neraga.
He danced with his feet vigorously on the head of Kaliya who was doing penance
He talked on the shade of Thamala tree alone with me and remembering that,
With his body of the colour of blue lotus, on that day he carried the Govardhana and stood there,
And now he carries all the worries of the entire world and going straight from here.
Thoothu chendra un vayadithanam kandu,
Thollai yendru yenni vittaro,
Nada kuzhal isayil nava navamaga,
Ragam: inaithu vittaaro,
Aadhavan anji kulirnthu nindru,
Adiyenayum sairanthari pola yenni,
Agattum yendru vittaro
Seeing you who had gone as my messenger as a chatter box,
Did he think it is trouble some and disregarded me,
Or did he merge himself in the new and new tunes that he sung on his flute,
Or did he feel happy on seeing the Sun being scared of him and so he was feeling cold,
Or did he he think that this slave is a sairanthri (eunuch maid) and left me thinking, let it be like that.
