bhale banī a-oye vṛṣabhanu tani
caraṇa-kamala-tale aruṇa birajita
mañjīra-rañjita madhura dhwani
bayase samanasańge naba rańgiṇī
sajali śyama-daraśa rasa-lobhe

bīṇa upańga hata para śobhe
gati ati manthara naba yaubana bhara

govinda-dasa kahabhulala ali-kula
beḍhala kabarīka malatī-male
(Refrain) Vrsabhanu's daughter gracefully arrives. The soles of Her lotus feet are reddish and glorious. Her anklets sweetly jangle.
1) The graceful young gopis eagerly prepare to sip the nectar of meeting with Krsna. One gopi plays the rabab (sarod). Another gopi plays the muraja. Another gopi makes her hand melodiously stroke the vina.
She walks with slow grace. She is a glorious youthful teenage girl. Her
garments are blue. Her ornaments jangle. Her slender waist is like a lioness'
waist. Her pearl necklace is a host of waves in the celestial
3) Her jewel earrings defeat the sunshine. A graceful sindura dot decorates Her forehead. Govinda dasa says: Black bees wander among the jasmine flowers that adorn Her braids.
This song is sung in Raga Kalyani.
