Song of twilight

The bird’s songs have ended now

The ruler of the day has gone

Unending tears are tedious for pretty eyes

Maid whose tresses are decked with flower buds!

Tell me, does this maddening twilight come

From the country where the absconder lives?

– From the Tamil epic The Ankle Bracelet, translation by Alain Danielou
