Come Friend! Let's Go And Behold... - Poem by Narsinh Mehta

Come friend! Let's go and behold the mango tree blossoming near Gokul!
Its sixteen thousand branches sheltering the three worlds!
Come friend! Lets go and behold the mango tree blossoming near Gokul!

Vasudeva of Yadavas cast the seed; it sprouted in Devaki's womb!
Nanda brought it home in exchange and Yashoda nurtured it by her milk.
Come friend! Let's go and behold the mango tree blossoming in Gokul!

Its roots are deep in the seven nether worlds, and it extends unto the heavens!
Narada, Sharda intone its praises, like wasps around the perfumed lotus!
Come friend! Lets go and behold the mango tree blossoming in Gokul!

Says Narsaiyyo Dhruva, Rukamangad, Ambarish, Pralhad have all plucked
The fruits of devotion and service-O it lives in the hearts of his devotees!
Come friend! Lets go and behold the mango tree blossoming in Gokul!
