உருவொளி காட்டுகின்றீர் எனக்கு உய்வழக்கு ஒன்று உரையீர்
திருவிளையாடு திண்டோள் திருமாலிருஞ்சோலை நம்பி
வரிவலையில் புகுந்து வந்திபற்றும் வழக்குளதோ?
Andal or kothai nachiaar is one among the 12 azhwars. Being a female, her devotion and love towards kannan is but a natural nayaki bhavam.. Hence here love poems towards kannan exude with extreme passion and ecstasy..the old tamil literature is filled with examples of lovelorn girls becoming lean enough to lose their bangles..
This is one poem which reflects her love towards kannan , in that she sees him in all those violet and blue colored flowers of tirumaliruncholai.. ( azhagar malai/ madurai district) reminding her of kannan's divine colour..
Ah! fragrant beautiful violet flowers,
Blissfully reminding his radiant colors
whose valour unmatched, loving him tender
His passion makes me melt out slender
Is this is his way, to enter my home,
And pull out the bracelets of a girl in gloom
