O Radha who out of contrariness refuses to enter the cottage of amorous pastimes, begins walking on the path home, is stopped by Him with a mixture of brute force and plaintive appeals, and responds with a smile from deep within Your eyes, please, for even a moment, delight my eyes.

O Radha' who shines like a stationary lightning flash on the handsome, broad chest of the dark monsoon cloud of Lord Madhava, like a flowering vine on the jasmine-flower couch of His chest, and like a charming garland of golden yuthi flowers there, please, for even a moment, delight my eyes.
