இனிய புள்ளினம்/ Sweet bird species

இருளான உடலோடும் அழகாக மொழி பேசும்
காகங்களின் குறைதீர்க்கும் புள்ளினமே
தினம்தோறும் உன் குரல் சேரும் செவியோரம்
தரும் சுகமே.

கவிதைகள் கனக்கில்லை உன் புகழ் பரவிட
உன்னை பாடிடாத மொழி ஏதும் உண்டா நினைத்திட?
பெருகிவரும் குடியிருப்பாலும், மரங்கள் வேரருப்பாலும்
தொலைந்து போகுமோ உன் குடில்?

காகத்தின் கருப்புபோர்வையில் ஔநி்திருக்கும் நிலவு குயில்
தன் குரலால் தனித்து நிற்க்கும் சிறப்பாக.
விழிகளிலும், இறைஉண்பதிலும் வேறுபடும் பறவை
குழல் ஒலியைவிட இனிமையானது இதன் குறல்.

Translation in english follows:

In darkness figure and lovely speaking language
corvine grievance solving bird species
daily in your voice mergers ear verge
gives welfare.

Countless verses spread your praise
is there any language lack singing u to think?
In increase of residence and uprooting trees
will lose your hut?

In crows dark blanket, the hidden moon koel
will stand separately with its vocal specialty
through eyes and in having food, distinguished bird
its vocal is more sweaters than flute sound.

"The bird in the picture is not crow, its The Asian Koel clicked near my home."

WOW have shown respect to crows whom usually no one respects!!! at least thats what I have seen in India but when I see some here in California ( as in Canada I have not seen a single one) and I feel like home :)
So very sweet tribute for the crows and thanks for translating as I can understand Tamil but can't read or write :)
Cheers dear

Super. I love birds especially used to wonder at Crows when they come in big groups if they see another crow dead. Have you ever observed. Also, they never used to have food alone. They used to bring in more crows. When we were in India, my mom used to keep food for crows first.

So nice of you to have thought about them and your poem was excellent. This is another area you should concentrate. You have got great skills. Try attempting more.
