Her grief – Kurunthokai 290

290.What she said

People say, “you will have to bear it.”

Don’t they know what passion is like,

or is it that they are so strong?

As for me,if I dont see my lover

grief goes down my heart,

and like a streak of foam in high waters

dashed on the rocks

little by little I ebb

and become nothing.

Poet :Kalporu Cirunuraiyar

(Poet name means”he of the streak of foam hitting on rocks”)
