dhvanir udgarjati vana-gataye

soḍhum ahaḿ samayasya na samprati śaktā lavam api pātam
mādhava-caraṇāńguṣṭha-nakha-dyutir ayam udayati hima-dhāmā
mā gurujana-bhayam udgira muhur iyam abhavaḿ dhāvita-kāmā
taḿ sevitum iha paśya sanātana-paramāraṇya-javeśam
gopa-vadhū-tatir iyam upasarpati bhānu-sutā-taṭa-deśam
(Refrain) The flute that brings auspiciousness to Gokula now thunders King Kamadeva's order to go to the forest.
1) Why do you make a delay with these superfluous decorations? I cannot tolerate even a moment's delay!
2) "Madhava's toenails are very splendid." “The moon is now rising!" "Don't tell me again and again how I should fear my superiors! I yearn to run to Madhava!"
3) Look! The gopis are all going to the Yamuna's shore to serve Madhava, who is always handsomely decorated with forest flowers.
Remarks/ Extra Information:
Srila Jiva Gosvami explains that a gopi eagerly desiring to meet Krsna at an appointed rendezvous sings this song to a gopi friend engaged in decorating her.
This song is to be sung in Carnatic Raga Karnata.
