Thiruppaavai songs 13, 14 & 15

Verse 13

puLLinvaai keeNdaanai, pollaa arakkanaik
kiLLik kaLaindhaanaik keerthimai paadippOi,
piLLaigaL ellaarum paavaik kaLambukkaar;
veLLi ezhunthu , viyaazham uRangitru;

kuLLak kuLirak kudainthu neeraadaathE,
paLLik kidaththiyO ? paavaai ! nee nannaaLaal
kaLLam thavirnthu kalanthElOr embaavaai

Meaning 

The lasses(young women) have reached,
The place of prayer for Pavai,
Singing the fame of our Lord.
Who killed the ogre who came like a stork.
And who cut off the heads of the bad ogre, One by one.
The nevus (a mark in the form of a raised red patch) has risen in the morn,
The Jupiter has vanished from the sky,
The birds are making lot of sound,
Of beautiful one with wide eyes red as a flower.
Without taking bath by dipping
again and again in ice cold water,
Would you prefer to sleep.
Oh lass, On this holy day,
Do not stay aside, And come to bathe with us.

Verse 14

ungaL puzhakkadaith thOttaththu vaaviyuL 
senkazhuneer vaainegizhnthu aambalvaai koombina kaaN;
sengal podikooRai veNpaal thavaththavar,
thangaL thirukkOyil sankiduvaan pOgindraar;
engaLai munnam ezhuppuvaan vaaipEsum
nangaai ! ezhunthiraai, naaNaathaai !naavudaiyaai!
sankodu sakkaram Enthum thadakkayan
pangayak kaNNaanaip paadElOr embaavai ,

Meaning

In the pond in the backyard of your house.
The lily in the ponds have opened,
The night flowers have closed,
The white toothed sages,
Who wear clothes as red as,
The powder of brick, Are going to their temples.
To sound the conch.
You who promised to wake us up, Please wake up,
Are you not ashamed, You chatter box,
Let us all sing about the lotus eyed one,
Who has a holy conch and disc in his hands,

Verse 15

ellE iLankiLiyE ! innam uRanguthiyO?
sillendru azhaiyEnmin, nangaimeer ! pOdharkindrEn?
'vallai un katuraigaL ! paNdEun vaayaRithum!'
'valleergaL neengaLE , naanEthaan aayiduga !'
'ollai nee pOdhaai , unakkenna vErudaiyai ?'
ellOrum pOndhaarO? pOndhaar, pOndhu eNNikkoL
vallaanai kondraanai , maatraarai , maatrazhikka
vallaanai , maayanaip paadElOr embaavaai . 

Meaning 

“Hey, little bird, Are you still sleeping? ”
“Don’t disturb my sleep , Lasses, I will just come”.
“You are good in your speech, We know what you mean.”
“You be good, but leave me alone”
“Come quickly, why is it different for you?”
“Have every one gone?” “Gone, think they have gone”
“Please wake up and sing,
Of he who killed the big elephant,
Of him who can remove enmity from enemies,
And of him who is the holy enchanter.
