Winter Lotusby Rasakhan
English version by Shyamdas
Original Language Hindi
Intoxicated by Krishna's bewitching form,
I have renounced all propriety and
wander the forest shamelessly.
He strikes from the corner of His wide,
lovely, Lordly eyes
with that crooked,
Is there anyone capable of restraining herself
after seeing His smiling face,
brimming full of love?
I am like a winter lotus
struck, bent, and broken
by an elephant.
