(389)  Phulera vanete bhramara eseche

In the flower grove, a bumblebee has entered;
Humming, what does she mean to say?
She simply wants all the floral nectar,
Every bit that has been retained.[1]

It was hard to get, concealed by the blossom
So very carefully, so very stealthily.
With one mind, she carried the nectar off;
And with the taking, that fact she revealed.

Sweet fragrance there was and smeared with pollen;
With the removal of nectar also went the scent.
All the flower pollen covered her as she went;
Thus coated from the theft, she reported the event.
