coriyum mukilaip pathuma nithiyaic curapi tharuvaic camamAkac co(l)liyum: "(In granting alms) you are like the cloud that showers rain, like the (wish-yielding) Padmanidhi, KamadhEnu and KaRpaga tree" - even if one praises in such words -
manam eL (ath)thanaiyum nekizhvu il sumadar aruku utRu: those miserly, base people would not be moved nor would they show an iota of kindness; approaching such people,
iyal vANar theriyum arumaip pazhaiya mozhiyaith thirudi nerudik kavi pAdi: and composing songs on them by stealing from ancient and rare songs written by Tamil poets, well-versed in literature, or by inserting such poems in my own songs with slight modifications,
thiriyu maruL vittu unathu kuvaLaic cikari pakarap peRuvEnO: I do not want to roam about with such deceptive knowledge; instead, I would like to sing about the greatness of Your mountain in ThiruththaNigai where everyday a black lily blossoms; will I be fortunate to sing like that?
kariya puruvac cilaiyum vaLaiya: When the black bow-like brows (of VaLLi) were bent (due to pangs of passion),
kadaiyil vidam meththiya neelak kadiya kaNai pattu uruva: and when the (fifth and) last flowery and severe arrow of blue lily (neelOthpalam)*, full of poison, struck You, You became very passionate, being unable to bear separation (from VaLLi);
veruvik kalaikaL pala pattana kAniRku uriya kumarikku apayam ena nekku: with utmost fear, You went to the forest in VaLLimalai, belonging to that maiden, where many deers roam about, and declared that You sought refuge in VaLLi;
upaya saraNaththinil veezhA uzhaiyin makaLaith thazhuva mayal utRu uruku(m) murukap perumALE.: then You fell in prostration at her feet; later, You stood there melting with intense passion to embrace her, the daughter of a deer, Oh Great One!
