LYRICS:

(1)

nava ghana kānana śohana kuja;

vikasita kusuma madhukara guja

 

(2)

nava nava pallave śobhita ḍāla;

sāri śuka pika gāoye rasāla

 

(3)

tahi boli aparūpa ratana hindola;

tāpora baiṭhalo yugala kiśora

vraja ramaṇī-gaṇa deota jhakora;

gīrata jāni dhani korotahi kora

 

(5)

koto koto upajala rasa parasańga;

govinda dāsa tahi dekhoto rańga

 

TRANSLATION

1-5) In the new deep forest is a beautiful kunja where the flowers blossom and the bees buzz. On the fresh leaves on the beautiful branches the female Sari-parrots and the male Suka parrots sing delicious songs. Here is a wonderful jeweled swing, on which the Yugala Kisora is seated. The Vraja-gopis give a push, and Radha takes shelter of Krsnas lap, afraid that She will fall. How many rasika talks are being held? Govinda dasa blissfully beholds it.

 

REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

This song is sung in Raga Tilak Kamod in Chuta-Dasakusi Tala.
