Don't be deceived

(1810)  Ke baleche kathor tumi

Who has claimed You are severe,
Oh Tender One, a flower's only creed?
The mistake have I been clarifying.
Sweetly smiling having neared,
You inquire how I'm doing.

On outside stays a covering;
It's not Your innate property.
Under the severity lies concealed
Tenderness, I have perceived.

Fruit's tasty juice, honey-sweet,
And floral pollen's touch refreshing...
Had You not remained tied to the dreary,
I would not have got what I've received.
