Oh, dear friend! Go at once! Tell my beloved about my anguish.
I wonder, which girl is blessed today to enjoy the company of Sri Nirajanabha, the suzerain of the world?
Oh, Carutarangi (having a charming form). I am like a Cataka bird, fervently waiting for my beloved, the one as beautiful as Cupid, to come and enjoy with me. Oh, friends with moon-like faces! Since I am constantly thinking in this vein, I am languishing!
Because of the target of Cupid's arrows, my mind is wavering. AS I have lost my confidence, even the cool rays of the moon torture me like fire produced from lighting. Alas! Do help to lessen my sorrows. Oh, Krstanulatike (having a slender body like a creeper).Enough of this talk, oh one with doe-like eyes! Alas! for many days I am suffering due to loneliness. Why are you keeping quiet? I have fallen into this ocean of separation and all my senses are confused!
