    translated from Bengali to English by

    Strike the Pose of Sweet Krishna by Nabai Moyra

    Strike the Pose of Sweet Krishna

    Nabai Moyra

    Strike the bent pose of sweet Krishna

    when he dances with the cowherd-girls;

    come stand in the shrine

    of the heart's temple.

    Come show yourself

    as the charming crooked one

    with Radha at your side.

    Take off your skirt of human arms

    and put on the yellow dhoti

    of the cowherd god.

    Put the peacock feather on your head,

    and crook one foot over the other.

    Abandon your garland of human heads

    and put on the garland of forest flowers instead.

    Be the Dark Charmer for once,

    and not the Black Destroyer.

    O woman with heart of stone,

    the lotus of my heart blossoms

    when it sees the black moon!

    Just once, drop the sword

    and pick up the bamboo flute!

    Fulfill the yearning of the faithful!
