Narsinh Mehta

[Adi Kavi] (1414? – 1481? / Talaja, Bhavnagar, Gujarat / India)

Play 'raas' with us love

'Play raas with us love,
Play your sweet flute to us!'
'More alluring is Vrindavan than Vaikunth, show it to us, love.
Play raas with us love,
Play your sweet flute to us!'

On the banks of Jamuna, Jadava plays his honeyed flute,
The gopis slip away, seduced by the sound,
Leaving their crying kids behind.

[Hata Bildir]
