Oh Golden hued damsel! Why is it that I am the most unfortunate amongst the maidens here?
I am very frustrated because I am consumed by the desire to be with Lord Abjanabha, the paragon of virtues. However, I am unable to find a way to satisfy my intense wish.
Oh, Sitabhanuvadane-one whose face resembles the cool moon! just as Cataka-brid waits for the droplets of rain to quench its thirst-I too wait for craving for the lord of my life. I am ever filled with the thought of the lord who resembles Cupid. I have lost my seep as I am pining for his company. What shall I do now?
Oh, Vanajakshi-lotus-eyed! Many a day has passed wastefully. My bosom is drenched with copious team and is without any garlands.
Oh, Dear Kamini! somehow make my beloved understand my misery. Oh, Matangagamini having the gait of an elephant. Do not delay any longer but bring Him to me it is a beautiful night itself.
