Vanna vanna malar
Ragam Raga Malika
Vanna vanna malar thanile vandinam moikkuthadi,
Kannai mayukkathadi , Kathalai tthoonduthadi
In the multi coloured flowers bees hover as a crowd ,
Making it attractive to the eye and it increases sensation of love.
Thendralum veesuthadi, themmangu paduthadi ,
Then unda vandukalum reenkaaram seyyuthadi
The breeze from south blows and sings rustic folk songs,
And the bees which have drunk the honey is making sound “Reem”
Anthi vaanam sivanthathadi , Alliyum malarnthathadi ,
Azhagaana mayil inamum aadi kalipoottuthadi
The sky of the dusk has turned red , The lily flowers have opened,
And the pretty peacocks dance and increase our joy.
Sonnapadi vanthiduven endru sonna kandhanum,
Innum varavillayadi, enna kurai seithenadi.
The Skanda who has told that he would come as promised,
Still has not come , What wants of his I have not fulfilled.
Poom kuyil koovuthadi , punniyan varuvaan endru,
Pooritha yen ullam Pongi magizhnthathadi.
The Koel of the flower is singing and my over joyed mind,
Thinking that blessed one would come is ebbing with joy.
Kanavai ninaivakka kandanum vandharadi ,
Kanni yennai anaithu kaniyamudham thantharadi
To make my dream in to realty that Skanda has come,
And he embraced this maid and gave me nectar in my lips.
