Then and now

(1253)  Chilo se ankhira tara

He was the most cherished...
Braja's Kanu[1] dispossessed,
Braj[2] is without ornament.

On hearing His flute fascinating,
Braja's dust was rising with a grin.
The waters of Jamuna and the Hill of Govardhan,
They were dancing with a thrill.

At the time of churning curd,
Dairymaids, head bent from love,
Were wondering: "When will I see my Gopal?[3]
He makes both mind and heart full!"
