Kanda Naal Muthal
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Kanda naal muthal kadhal peruguthadi,
Kayinil vel piditha karunai siva balanai
Vandu isai paadum yezhil vasantha poongavil,
Vanthe sugam thantha kanthanai, yen kanthanai
Neela mayil thanai nenjamum marakkavillai,
Nesamudan kalantha pasamum maraya villai,
Kola kumaran mana koyilil nirainthu vittan,
Kuru nagai thanai katti naru malar sooti vittaan.
From the day I saw the son of Lord Shiva,
Who is merciful and holds the Vel,
My love for him is ebbing out.
In the pretty garden where the bees sing,
The Kandha who came and gave me pleasure
My mind has not forgotten the blue peacock,
The affection mixed with love has not vanished,
The pretty Murugan has filled my mind,
And he shows his slight smile and,
Makes me Wear the flowers on my head.
