sthalakamalini... - Vilapa Kusumanjali 2

O lotus-tree! it is certainly befitting that you
Should proudly reveal the blooming clusters
Of your most excellent and pretentious smile;
How could it otherwise be? When the forest
Abounds with fragrant blooming flower vines,
And yet the black bee foresakes them all today,
And seeks the path that leads to you alone!

Vilapa Kusumanjali 2

O thou beautiful-eyed one! Having cautiously worshiped
thy lotus-feet with a pair of jewel-studded sounding anklets,
When will I expediently offer ritual adoration
by adorning thy petal-like dainty toes with toe-rings,
dearly loved? and right suddenly upon thy ample hips,
the incomparable sacred shrine of love-sports
for the proud adversary of Kamsa,
when shall I place a jingling ornamental zone?

From the very time some manjari by the name of Rupa called, did the wondrous splendour of this pasture land to my eyes reveal; from that momment, O princess of Vrnda's forest, have I cherished an intense craving to behold with my own eyes the soles of thy lotus-feet, stained with red cosmetic dye annointed thereon.
