The Young Infants Were Sleeping With The Lullaby Of The Owl!

Since the men of the opponent country have not
Praised the name of the Chola king, Sembiyan,

The young infants
With shrinking lines in their red legs,

Who were delivered under the shadow
Of the leaves of shrubs,

By the women of opponent's country men
who ran out hither and thither,

Were sleeping with the lullaby by the loud
and fierceful voice of the owl in the midnight!
