Bank of Yamuna, spring eternally embellished.
Lover’s dais an adorned amulet frothing in love
Love notes playing on perfumed petals of lute.
Horizon blushed in hush seeing the charisma
Dusk with vermillion pride hanging on the west.
Moon savour Yamuna’s dancing waves of joy
Night stood metamorphosed like a dream.
Green wood tranquil, tamed leaves non fluttering
Humble breeze unfold magic mantra in hour’s spirit.
Heaven perched upon Vrindavan as a bough
And the habitants’ left in spell bound.
Vrindavan yielded to Lord Krishna’s fervid Leelas.
His footprints kiss sands and imprints sing keertan for him.
His pranks on Gopis, moments of supreme celebration
Such fiesta they foster as caprice and love to indulge more
Unconditional love of Gopis an undisputed renowned truth.
Radha , the true love and shadow of Krishna
Love stricken ethereal beauty of Vrindavan
Often hides her presence playfully in the bushes
To invite Krishna’s blissful apparitions to get lost
in his sudden embarrassing embrace of love.
She forgets self in those elated soulful moments.
When her soft fingers touch His peacock feather
There is rainbow harvest on the bluish sky.
When Krishna caress her tresses romantically
Her anklets and bangles giggles in ecstasy.
When Radha’s honeyed lips kiss His Murali
Shivarangini Raaga flows as Ganga everywhere.
Whole Vrindavan exhale their love saga
There is a melody in the mesmerising love.
Glory of Radha and Krishna touch the sky.
It chimes on the clouds and reach Devalog.
Away from all crowds, simple and divine lass Tulsi
Surrender in devotion as garland for Krishna
To remain on Krishna’s chest as Srivatsa forever!
