This blog is dedicated to my dearest Krishna...mostly poetry, sometimes through the words of a Gopi, and sometimes, just my own musings...

The flowers that adorned Your shoulders mighty:
The unerring messengers of Your fragrance earthy;
This slave now holds in her hands blessed,
Even as my heart leaps in joy at Your behest!

The world may call them unworthy
For they now appear variably withered!
But oh! They were on my sweet Sarathy smothered:
Does the damned world know that few are as fortunate and worthy?

The roses that are now half-dead,
Hide the scent of my Lord so unmistakable!
In the yellow flowers that are now black instead,
i feel the force of Your perspiration so recognizable!

In the white flowers that You once adorned with grace:
Wearing them, i rejoice in the warmth of Your embrace!
And o Lord! By the leaves of tulasi betwixt strung,
i taste the dust of Your Holy Feet in my tongue!!

There aren't words to describe Your love,
Or Dearest Krishna! The benovelant boons You bestow!
O Merciful Lord who enchants with Your smile so serene:
Let me please be a lotus for Your beautiful Feet!!

    வாடின ரோசாவில் வாட்டமிலா அவன் வாசம்
    கூடின கண்ணன் அவன் வேர்வைச் சுக வாசம்!

    மஞ்சள் மலர்கள் மணம்விட்டுப் போனாலும்
    மஞ்சன விளையாட்டு மனம்விட்டுப் போயிடுமோ?

  4. வெள்ளை முல்லைப்பூ மலர்வாசம் போனாலும்
    கொள்ளைப் பல்வரிசை வாய்வாசம் போகலையே!

    பச்சைத் துளசி உன் பாதத்தில் உறவாடி
    இச்சைக் கால் ருசிக்கு என் நாவும் ஊறுதையோ!
    ---

    நறுமலரால் மயக்குமொரு மன்மதனே மேலாவான்;
    குறுமலராய் வாசனைபோய் மயக்கிடநீ வல்லவனே!

    ஆடாதே அடுபாவீ அல்லிக் கேணியிலே
    வாடாத என்மேனி மலர்சூட வருவாயே!
