வேளை வென்ற உழத்தியர் வெம்முலை
ஆளை நின்று முனிந்திடும் அங்கு ஒர்பால்
பாளை தந்த மதுப் பருகிப் பரு
வாளை நின்று மதர்க்கும் மருங்கு எலாம்
Peasant women who defeat even God of love,
tame men with their perky breasts,
that are like taut fleshy murrel fish,
drunk on overflowing toddy from the palm tree.
Peasant women are so beautiful that they defeat even the God of love. Their breasts stand up and tame men in front of them. They are like fleshy murrel fish, but taut. But why are the fish taut? Palm trees are full of toddy that flows into the fields even without tapping. Murrel fish found in fields drinks this toddy and stiffen up. Kamban links the voluptuousness of the women to the abundance of the field.
