Author: Govinda Dasa Kaviraja
Book Name: Padavali
sajala jalada ańga manohara
chaṭāye cāhila nahe
īṣata hāsiyā manera ākuti
aruṇa nayāne kahe
āju ki pekhalu binoda nāgara
rūpa nirakhite āńkhira lāja
baula-māla diyā kuntala ṭāniyā
rańginī locana khañjana bandhite
pātila biṣama phānde
makara-kuṇḍala sańge dolaye
bhāle se madana tāhe bimbita
1) His charming limbs dark like monsoon clouds were so effulgent I could not even look upon them. His gently smiling reddish eyes spoke of the desires hidden in His heart.
2) Who is it I saw today? He was a playful boy under a keli-kadamba tree. My eyes were shy to gaze on His handsome form. I floated in an ocean of bliss.
3) He wore a garland of bakula flowers. A peacock feather decorated His hair. His reddish eyes were like restless kanjana birds. I fell into the terrible trap He had carefully set.
4) Shark-shaped earrings swung to and fro on His glistening-mirror cheeks. Kamadeva was reflected on His forehead. Govinda dasa thinks of Him in this way.
This song is sung in Raga Todi.
