Purananuru 339

She, the heroine have rest in marriage. Otherwise war will broke out.
The cowherd is gathering flowers while his bull resting in the shadow of Palmyra tree.
The rabbit ran away having cudgel beat nearby its hiding place and turn hopping along with the fish (Valai) in water.
The girls, wearing leaf-dress, play in sea-wave and then take bath in clean water in pond picking water-flower (neital).
These are simile-like narrations hinting the war movements.
