Paddy fields flourishing due to bufalloes milk

ஈர நீர் படிந்து இந் நிலத்தே சில
கார்கள் என்ன வரும் கருமேதிகள்
ஊரில் நின்ற கன்று உள்ளிட மென்முலை
தாரை கொள்ளத் தழைப்பன சாலியே.

Wallowing in water, buffaloes wander
like dark clouds descended on earth;
Thinking of calves left behind, their soft udders
overflow with milk, paddies flourishing in them.

Buffaloes are well fed that their udders overflow even without milking. The paddy field grows is fed not only by water, but the overflowing milk of the buffaloes. Dark buffaloes wallowing in water have only their humps visible. This makes them look like dark clouds moving about in the pond.
