śyāma abhisāre calali sundarī dhanī
naba naba rańginī sāthe
bāma śrabana mūle śata-dala pańkaja
kāma jaya phula-dhanu hāte
bhālahi sindūra bhānu-kiraṇa ṣanu
taḿhi cāru candana-bindu
mukha heri lājame sāyare lukāyala
dine dine kṣīṇa bhela indu
kari-rada-biracita cāru bhūṣaṇa kare
madana jiniyā dhanī sāja
caraṇa-i nūpura mukhara manohara
rati-jaya bājala bāja
lalitādi sakhī mili mańgala hulāhuli
doḿhe doḿhā hera-ite duhu cita pulakita
bāli hari gobinda-dāse
1) Accompanied by a young gopi-friend, a beautiful girl goes to meet Krsna. A hundred-petal lotus flower decorates Her left ear. She defeats Kamadeva, who holds a bow of flowers in his hand.
2) She is decorated with red sindura. She is effulgent like the sun. She is gracefully marked with sandal-paste dots. Shyly she watches. She hides by a pond. She is slender like a crescent-moon grown more and more slender after many days.
3) She is graceful with ivory ornaments. She is so beautiful She defeats Kamadeva. Anklets adorn Her feet. Her face is enchanting. Her jingling ornaments defeat Rati.
4) She meets with Lalita and Her other friends. A joyful tumult arises. She yearns to taste the nectar of gazing on dark Krsna. She and Krsna gaze at each other. The hairs of Their bodies stand erect with joy. This Govinda dasa says.
This song is sung in Raga Tilaka Kamod.
