Simple translation

Remaining angry towards those who hinder the enjoyment of humble ladies who have beautiful eyes which are sharp like a spear which are a tool for war and are cool like neydhal flower, due to the desire in heart towards such ladies which keeps increasing, the resulting lowly sin is difficult to eliminate; oh you who desire to eliminate such sin and reach paramapadham which is difficult to reach even for brahmA et al who have fame! Go and reach thillaith thiruchchiththirakUdam which is having the river named veLLARu with abundant water, brings pearls, pushes them and plants them in every fertile field where the kayal fish jump around, and the beautiful neydhal flower is spreading everywhere and has the town shining due to that.

Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

seru … – Remaining angry towards those who hinder the enjoyment of humble ladies who have beautiful eyes which are sharp like a spear which are a tool for war and are cool like neydhal flower, due to the desire in heart towards such ladies which keeps increasing, the resulting lowly sin is difficult to eliminate and is a hurdle to attain bhagavAn; oh you who desire to eliminate such sin and reach paramapadham which is difficult to reach even for brahmA et al who have fame!

peru nIr … – The nivA river which has abundant water brings pearls and plants them in the fertile fields where the kayal fish jump and roam around and the beautiful neydhal flower is present – such thillaith thiruchchiththirakUdam which is shining.
