TRANSLATION

(Refrain) The beautiful girl goes to Her meeting with Krsna. Overcome with new found love, the fair girl has become black. The black night is fearsome.

   

1) Black is the musk that anoints Her. Black is Her glistening necklace. Black are the bracelets that adorn Her wrists. Black is Her bodice.

 

2) Black are the curly locks of hair that toss like waves on Her forehead. In the black darkness She stealthily walks. Black now are the lotus flowers. Blackness was brought by the sunset. No one can see anything.

 

3) Black are the bumblebees chasing the sweet fragrance. Their buzzing fills the four directions. Govinda dasa says: I can only guess that Sri Radha is now running to meet with Krsna.
