43. மகளிரின் வாயிதழும் முகமும் – Women’s lips and face

இடை இற மகளிர்கள் எறிபுனல் மறுகக்
குடைபவர் துவர் இதழ் அலர்வன குமுதம்;
மடைபெயர் அனம் என மட நடை இளகக்
கடைசியர் முகம் என மலர்வன கமலம்.

Slim waisted women splash in wavy waters
as they bathe; like their rosy lips, blossoms the lily;
like swans in lakes, with small steps softly walk
the peasant women; like their faces, blossoms the lotus.

Similar to the previous verse, in this too the comparisons are switched in similes. Lilly blossoming is like the rosy lips of bathing women with slim waists. Lotus blossoming is like the face of peasant women who walk softly like swans in lakes.
