While unperishing love melted my bonesby Manikkavacakar
English version by G. E. Yocum
Original Language Tamil
While unperishing love melted my bones,
I shouted again and again,
louder than the waves of the

Bewildered like a madman,
Intoxicated like a crazy drunk,
so that people were puzzled
and those who heard wondered.
Wild as a rutting elephant which cannot
I could not contain myself.
