Telugu Poetry – First attempt

Telugu poetry (Chandobaddha or adhering to metre) had been dear to me in my high school days. Like all loves of childhood that does make its way back to one’s life, I found myself getting back to it these days.

The below is my first attempt at the Chandobaddha Kavitvamu. The Chandassu chosen was Utpalamala. Find out more about Utpalamala here.

The poem is a tribute to Annamacharya, Pothana and Ramadasa -my three favourite composers and poets in Telugu.

విందుగ యన్నమయ్య తిరువెన్నుని కీర్తుల పాడెనే ముదం
బొందగ శౌరి గాథలను పోతన కోరి రచించెనే చెరన్
పొందియు రామదాసు మనముంచెను రాఘవు ధ్యాసలో మహా
నందము గూర్చిరే తెలుగు నాటికి నేటికి వేల్పులీ కవుల్
