Did those clear eyes
that grin and sneer at
a man’s lost eyesight
see their sister-daughters,
or brother-sons
that did his ill-fate breed?

He was the beacon,
the guiding North Star
that guided us all
when we just grouped,
but what use of those magics
if in mud he wallows?

එළි කරණම්?

සිනාසෙන නුඹෙ දෑස්
මිනිසෙකුට මසැස අඳ
දුටුවේද කිසි දිනෙක
අමන කම් තිළිණ කළ,
සහෝදර දූවරුන්?

ප්‍රදීපය නුඹම විය
දිළෙන තරු – උතුරු කුරු
නොමඟ යා නොදී
මග අපට කියා දුන්.

නුඹ මංමුලා වී නම්,
කුමට ඒ,
එළි කරණම්?
