Loving Vowby Rasakhan
English version by Shyamdas
Original Language Hindi
I know all about the Enchanter's heart.
His glance has merged my heart with Him.
Ever since the day
I saw the captivating and beautiful,
moon-like face of that eminent Shyam
in the love-bower,
my eyes have abandoned all caution
and family concerns.
Now I wander His forest glade.
What can I do?
He has captured me.
I am stuck to that mine of nectar.
My loving vow is to His advantage.
