āhā ki dekhi go baḍā-i kadambera tale

śyāmacāndera upare dhabala cāndera kalā

TRANSLATION

1) Aha! What did I see under a kadamba tree? It was like a new raincloud embraced by lightning.

 

2) It was like a glistening white full moon above a dark new moon. Above those two moons glistened a garland of darkness.

 

3) Above that garland was a rainbow. What was that wonderful form I saw?

 

4) The effulgent archer's bows of that form's eyebrows defeated the rainbow. That form enchanted Govinda dāsa's heart.

 

Remarks/ Extra Information:

This song is to be sung in Raga Suhai.
