(1)காக்கை சிறகினிலே நந்தலாலா
நின்றன் கரிய நிறம் தோன்றுதையே நந்தலாலா

Kakkai siraginile nanda laala,
nindran kariya niram thondruthaye nanda laala,

In the wings of crow, oh lord,
all I see is your ebony complexion, oh lord,

(2)பார்க்கும் மரங்களெல்லாம் நந்தலாலா
நின்றன் பச்சை நிறம் தோன்றுதையே நந்தலாலா

parkkum marangalellam nanda laala,
nindran pachai niram thondruthaye nanda laala,

In all the trees that I see around me, oh lord,
all I see is your green complexion, oh lord,

(3)கேட்கும் ஒளியில் எல்லாம் நந்தலாலா
நின்றன் கீதம் இசைக்குதடா நந்தலாலா

ketkum oliyil ellaam nanda laala,
nindran geedham isaikkudhada nanda laala,

In all the sounds that I hear, oh lord,
all I hear is the resonating melody of you, oh lord,

(4)தீக்குள் விரலை வைத்தால் நந்தலாலா
நின்னை தீண்டும் இன்பம் தோன்றுதடா நந்தலாலா

theekkul viralai vaithal nanda laala,
ninnai theendum inbam thondrudhada nanda laala

when I keep my fingers into fire, oh lord,
all I can feel is the ecstasy of your touch, oh lord

Very nice work. It will also be great if you can similarly translate other Mahakavi’s songs. Manadhil Uruthi vendum, Ninaniye rathi endru, Theerthakarayinile, Nirpadhuve, Ninnai saran adaindhen, Nalladhor veenai seidhu.
