kaN kALa kUdam kodum kAla rUpam porum kAma pANam: their eyes to AlakAla poison, to the form of the evil Yaman (God of Death) and to the arrow of the war-mongering Manmathan (God of Love),
surumpinam vAzhum Othi kAr sem sol men pAku thEn enRu ayarnthu: their hair, where beetles swarm about, to the dark cloud, and their sweet speech to jaggery and honey, I am exhausted searching for so many comparisons;
Om namO kanthA enRu uraiyAthE UsalAdum pulan thAriyE senRu ninRu Oyum ARu onRaiyum karuthAthO: not chanting Your name as "Om namO, KanthA!" why does my mind run along the path propelled by the five restless sensory organs and roam about vainly sticking to that very path? Will it not think of any method to end such wandering?
thAthakee saNpakam pUkam Ar kantha manthAram vAsanthi santhana(m) needu sAma vEthaNdam: In that dark mountain, VaLLimalai, where trees like thAthaki, ShaNbagam, betel-nut, charkkonRai, fragrant manthAram, kurukkaththi and sandalwood abound,
vem kOpa kOthaNdam santhAnam mAthu engaL paim punam mEvum: this damsel, VaLLi, was reared by the hunters, known for their quick temper and the bows carried by them; She is our dear lass who lived in the green field of millet;
theethilA vanji am seetha pAtham padum sEkarA: at the beautiful, cool and hallowed feet of that unblemished belle, VaLLi, whose waist is like the creeper vanji (rattan reed), You prostrated, touching her feet with Your head, Oh Lord!
thaNdai am kazhal pENi thEvi pAkam porunthu Athi nAthan thozhum thEsikA umpar tham perumALE.: the Primordial Lord SivA, who has DEvi PArvathi concorporate on one side of His body, cherished Your hallowed feet wearing the anklets (thaNdai and kazhal) and prostrated at those feet, Oh Grand Master; You are the Lord worshipped by the celestials, Oh Great One!
