Mudhal Iravu

17 September 2010 15 Comments

Hi All,

Here is my 16th poem.. It is called “Mudhal Iravu” which means “The First Night” after wedding..
I have written the translations below..

Mudhal Iravu

Kadhiravan kadalil iranga…
Ulagam muzhuvadhum uranga..
Nee kadhavai mella therakka..
Un kannil thayakkam kaanbaenadi..
Rathiyae..
Azhagil mayangi nirpaenadi..

ViLakku yaetha vandhavaL..
Neeae oru kuththu-viLakku…
ViLakkai anaithaalum…
Minnum un jwali jwalippu..
Unnai aLLi edukka en nenjam kenjumadi…
Uyirae..
Panjai.. Neruppu konjumadi..

En madiyil nee oru veenai..
Naan vaasipaen un keerthanai..
Aarohanathil kaekum un raagam..
Avarohanathil thaerum en dhaagam..
Shruthilayam koodiya kutcheri nadakumadi…
Sakiyae..
Iravellaam thodarumadi…

Ottum nam udalgaL
Ini verillai nizhalgaL
En kaikuL un viralgaL
Un idhazhmel.. en idhazhgaL..
Nee ennidam irukkaiyil..
Verenna thevaiyadi…
Mythiliyae…
Eka pathni viradham yeduththu…
Raamanaai Vaazhvaenadi…

Here is the translation..

As the sun goes down the ocean..
As the world falls asleep..
As you slowly open the door..
I will see reluctance in your eyes..
O Rathi (Rathi is a mythological damsel known for her stunning beauty)
I will be spell bound by your beauty..

Kadhiravan kadalil iranga…
Ulagam muzhuvadhum uranga..
Nee kadhavai mella therakka..
Un kannil thayakkam kaanbaenadi..
Rathiyae..
Azhagil mayangi nirpaenadi..

You came to lit the lamp of my life..
You are a lamp yourself..
Even when the lights are put off..
Your glow continues to shine..
My heart will plead me to lift you with both hands..
O my dear life..
I will cuddle you like how the cotton will be cuddled by fire..

ViLakku yaetha vandhavaL..
Neeae oru kuthu-viLakku…
ViLakkai anaithaalum…
Minnum un jwali jwalippu..
Unnai aLLi edukka en nenjam kenjumadi…
Uyirae..
Panjai.. Neruppu konjumadi..

You will be like a Veena on my lap
And all I will play will be your keerthanai (I will play your praises)
On the Aarohanam (The upstroke), I will hear your moans which are like raagas..
On the Avarohnam (The downstoke), My thirst will be quenched..
This will be a concert with rhymic hymns..
O companion
This concert will go on all night..

En madiyil nee oru veenai..
Naan vaasipaen un keerthanai..
Aarohanathil kaekum un raagam..
Avarohanathil thaerum en dhaagam..
Shruthilayam koodiya kutcheri nadakummadi…
Sakiyae..
Iravellaam thodarumadi…

This stanza has a lot of word play.. beautiful rhyming words in tamil..

After the concert.. Our bodies will be stuck together.
We no longer need two shadows..
Your fingers will be in my hands..
My lips will be on your lips..

Ottum nam udalgaL
Ini verillai nizhalgaL
En kaikuL un viralgaL
Un idhazhmel.. en idhazhgaL..

When you are with me..
What else do I want..
O Mythili.. (Mythili is seetha… the wife of Lord Rama..)
I will take the one-wife oath
And lead the life of Raama..

Nee ennidam irukkaiyil..
Verenna thevaiyadi…
Mythiliyae…
Eka pathni viradham yeduthu…
Raamanai Vaazhvaenadi…

One of my personal best poems.. Hope you enjoyed it!
