Cikana Kala Galaya Mala

(1)

cikana kala  galaya mala

bajaye nupura paya

cudara phule  bhramara bule

teracha nayane caya

 

(2)

kalindi-kule ki pekhinu sa-i

chaliya nagara kana

ghara mu ya-ite narinu sa-i

akula karila prana

 

(3)

canda jhalamali mayura pakha

cudaya udaye baya

isat hasiyamadhura bamsari

madhura madhura gaya

 

(4)

rasera bhare anga na dhare

keli-kadambera hela

kulabati sati yubati janara

parana la-iya khela

 

(5)

srabane cancala makara kundala

pindhana pinala basa

ranga utpala  carana-yugala

nichani gobinda-dasa

 

(1) His black complexion glistened. A flower-garland rested on His neck. On His feet anklets jangled. Flowers adorned His hair. Black bees flew nearby. He glanced at me with crooked eyes.

 

(2) Whom did I see, O gopi-friend, on the Yamuna's banks? It was the cheater Krsna, the rake Krsna. O friend, I had no power to run home. My life's breath became anxious.

 

(3) The moon shone. The breeze made His peacock-feather in His crown move to and fro. He gently smiled. He sweetly played on His sweet flute.

 

(4) Overcome with sweetness, He could not stand up. He leaned against a keli-kadamba tree. His sport is to cheat saintly young girls of their very life's breath.

 

(5) Shark-shaped earrings swung on His ears. His garments were yellow. His feet were red lotus flowers. Govinda dasa worships Him.
