TRANSLATION

(Refrain) O gopi-friend, was that person I saw Kamadeva Himself? A hero of playful pastimes, He gracefully danced under a kadamba tree.

 

1) He wore a peacock-feather crown. His jasmine garland was surrounded by black bees. Intoxicated by the scent of His garland, how many humming bees filled the four directions?

 

2) Moving the archer's bows of His eyebrows and emptying the two quivers of His eyes, how many flower-arrows did He fire? Many playful girls' hearts were wounded. Those girls could not gaze on anyone but Him.

 

3) Shark-shaped jewel earrings swung from His ears. Govinda dasa says: I think that person must have been more enchanting than Kamadeva himself.

This song is sung in Raga Dhanasri.
