ST11. SAINT'S SECOND MARRIAGE

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

SAINT THYAGARAJA

Hardly five years passed
Parvathi, his wife, died.
He married her sister
Kamalambal, the junior.

Sitalakshmi, a daughter,
Pretty one, was born to her.
He gave her his best attention,
With all love and affection.

When she came up of age,
He arranged for her marriage.
She married Kuppusamy,
A handsome Brahmin boy.

Many good presents came
But he never retained them
To Lord Rama, he gave them.
As they were not for him.

One of his disciples brought
Kothandarama’s color portrait,
He walked all the way
To bring it that day.

(He sang before the portrait:
Nannu Palimpa Nadasi Vachidhivo
Naa Prana Nadha.- Raga Mohana)

“Oh Lotus Kanan! I kept you
Ever in my mind to be with you
Did you all the way come
To save me at the right time?”

“Blue colored one you’re
Like the blue sapphire
The pearl chains, the best,
Dance over your chest.”

“Did you walk all the way
To see me here this day,
With Sita, daughter of Bhudevi,
Also with your arrows and bow?”
