Play it again, Krsna

(243)  Nupura dhvani abara bajila abara bajila

The sound of ankle bells rings out once more
In sweetest melody.
My doleful heart,
Infused with rhythm, has begun to dance.

With beauty, love, and floral fragrance
The world today is brimming.
In the clear sky and refreshing breeze,
Earth gambols in ecstasy.
Those from somewhere distant have come near,
At this high tide, full of bliss.

Why He remained afar, I cannot say;
Why He has come, that too I fail to understand.
I craved Him; and, lo, He Himself appeared
Upon this world's dusty earth thereafter.
