Male bee fooled into thinking young girls eyes as female bee.

பருவ மங்கையர் பங்கய வாள் முகத்து
உருவ உண்கணை ஒண் பெடை ஆம் எனக்
கருதி அன்பொடு காமுற்று வைகலும்
மருத வேலியின் வைகின வண்டு அரோ

In young girls lotus like bright face
beautiful, kohl lined eyes – thinking “this is my mate”,
falling in love, day and night
the male bees stay in the farm lands.

Bees stayed forever in the fields thinking that the dark kohl lined eyes in lotus like bright face of young women were female bees. Young girls eyes dart here and there, buzzing around like bees. It is a frequently used simile in Tamil.
