Kannadasa Dasan writes


One man is crying for
 Not having a child!
My friend is saying that
 His children are bad!

An ocean likes to run
 Like a larger river!
A deer wants to hunt
 Like a younger tiger!

This earth decided to
 Rest for a while!
A mountain wants to
 spin for a mile!

 Sun will never become
 A moon at all!
No man can ever make
 A star to fall!

I try to write my poetry
 Like that good poet!
That poet is saying that
 You are a great poet!
