LYRICS:

(1)

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

lalitādi sakhī mili mańgala hulāhuli

śyāma-daraśa-rasa-āśe

doḿhe doḿhā hera-ite duhu cita pulakita

TRANSLATION

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.
