TRANSLATION

1) Radha is sweet like nectar. Krsna is sweet like nectar. Why do They quarrel? Who knows?

 

2) Angrily They turn from each other. They will not meet. Still, They both enter Vrndavana forest.

 

3) O gopi-friend, what shall I say to make Them smile and laugh? How shall I arrange that They enjoy wonderful pastimes together?

 

4) Tears streamed from their eyes as They gazed at the pathway. They entered the forest darkness.

 

5) They asked about each other. Their hearts were stubborn and contrary. They each called out the name of a special gopi-friend.

 

6) To those friends They told what was in Their hearts. Those two friends met, hugged, and told what they had heard.

 

7) Then Radha and Krsna met and embraced. Govinda dasa asks: What pastimes did They enjoy then?
