Oh, Kilimozhi - parrot-like voiced! Go to my beloved and tell him my miseries.
Oh Kadarakshi! I feel fagged out! Oh Tarunimani! Oh Ramaniya Gunavasati! Calamizhi!
The moon is rising up and causing immeasurable miseries in my heart! The cool breeze, alas! is creating deep sorrow in my mind.
Oh, Sobhanangi! Siva! Siva!! In my heart I thought, He the Cupid will come to me full of passion. Oh, my dear! Explain to him my lovelorn state of mind and bring him to me to make me happy.
Oh, the full moon-faced! Remember, that I have been engulfed with miseries for a long time. That son of Vasudeva, worshiped by Indra and other celestials, I thought he will come and will become my husband.
