Nectar Radha

by Rasakhan

English version by Shyamdas
Original Language Hindi

When Radha's eyes bashfully meet Hari's,
     their delightful gestures
          entice His heart.

Her enchanting banter swindles His mind.
     Her words divulge an exquisite disposition.

She puts Her lips to His,
     filling that Abode of elixir
          with the nectar of Her very soul.

Although Krishna is an expert in all of love's spells,
     Radha captivates God
          with a few soft syllables.

-- from Treasure House of Love: Poems of Rasakhan, Translated by Shyamdas
