Agni Kunjondru Kandaen

(From the album Atma (Soul) by Bombay Jayashri)

Agni kunjondru kandaen
Adhai angoru kAttilOr pondhidai vaiththaen
Vendhu thaNindhadhu kAdu
Thazhal vEraththil kunjendrum mOpendrum undO?

– Bharathiyar

I found a spark of fire,
which I placed in a burrow in the forest.
The forest was razed to the ground.
Is there any distinction in embers based on size?
