புள்ளின் வாய் கீண்டானைப் பொல்லா அரக்கனைக்
கிள்ளிக் களைந்தானைக் கீர்த்திமை பாடிப்போய்ப்
பிள்ளைகள் எல்லாரும் பாவைக் களம்புக்கார்
வெள்ளி எழுந்து வியாழம் உறங்கிற்று
புள்ளும் சிலம்பின காண் போதரிக் கண்ணினாய்!
குள்ளக் குளிரக் குடைந்து நீராடாதே
பள்ளிக் கிடத்தியோ? பாவாய்!நீ நன் நாளால்
கள்ளம் தவிர்ந்து கலந்தேலோர் எம்பாவாய்.

This pasuram is sung to wake up a Gopika who has beautiful eyes.

The one who has beautiful eyes like that of the beetles residing in the flowers,

Bagaasuran disguised himself as a Duck and came to kill Krishna but our lord broke open his beak and killed him. Lord Rama decapitated Ravana , the king of Lanka. The other Gopikas have been singing praises about Rama and Krishna and have already reached the place where we undertake the Vow everyday. The planet venus has already appeared in the sky. The birds have been chirping alound and have been flying from street to street.

Instead of waking up in the wee hours of this month and underting the vow, you are still sleeping all cuddled up in your bed . That too on an auspicious day. What kind of Wickedness is in your heart that does not let you wake up? Let go of that wickedness now. Get up and come and join us.

P.S. It is out of love for Krishna that i have attempted this translation. A million apologies to all the scholars and the learned if i have committed any mistake(s) .
