Legendary poet Kumaranasan compares stages of human life and fame with that of a flower.

This is the fourth stanza of Veenapoove by Kumaranasan. It is a philosophical poem that depicts the life cycle of human beings. Stages of a flower are similar to fame that people gain during youth.

You shook your head to the tunes
of birds tweeting at sunrise
In a day you already have learned the hard facts of life
And have enjoyed the eternal silence of starry nights

    The order of the menus are not quite easy to access and also I think you should rethink your poetry translation styles.

    I am from US and I do not have much touch with Malayalam language, though it is my mother tongue. I have heard about poem “Veena poovu” from my parents that, it is best and they have studied it in their schools. I can now understand the message better and why it is so much appreciated. I am not sure, if this is the end to the poem, please post the rest stanzas too, if it is available.

    Veenapoovu is best, I like the way you have translated it but there needs to be some sweetness in your English approach. I feel you have bluntly put exact wordings for the poetry, next time be more poetic. People will certainly appreciate my thoughts, just try.
