Cover Me With A Blanket O Kanha, - Poem by Narsinh Mehta

Cover me with a blanket O Kanha, my chunri is all drenched!
Hold me close O Kanha; I am bare and shivering!

My dark love, hold me with tenderly,
Embrace me in your ecstasy!
put your arms around me and sip the heavenly nectar from my lips!
Cover me with a blanket, O Kanha, my chunri is all drenched!
Hold me close O Kanha; I am bare and shivering!

In this gentle drizzle, the frogs and peacocks cry!
Narsaiyya's lord has come to love
And the dark clouds and lightning thunder in the sky!
Cover me, with a blanket, O Kanha, my chunri is all drenched!
Hold me close O Kanha; I am bare and shivering!
