TRANSLATION

Refrain: Friend, you do not remember anything of the Divine Couple.

 

1) At night a bumblebee leaves the lotus flowers. He will not play among them.

 

2) In the daytime the lotus flowers are splendid in every direction, but at night they close their petals. They refuse to follow the example of the glittering stars.

 

3) The sun-god's charioteer, the dawn, has now come. Still, the lotus flowers will not open their eyes even slightly to see him.

 

4) Now the stars renounce their splendors. Now the Divine Couple splendidly appears berfore us.

 

5) Giving up their silence, the birds sing.

 

6) The village of Vraja is filled with sounds of yogurt being churned. Still, no one tells anything about the Divine Couple's pastimes.

 

7) The poet sings in a loud voice. The sun does not bring him to sing about anything else.
