Sanskrit Love Lyrics

8 Sep

IMG_8220If you discover your friend has a copy of sanskrit love lyrics, ask if you can take (not borrow) it. 

Below lyrics translated by P. Lal.

 

She must have sucked the moon dry

She must have sucked the moon dry

This lady of ravishing breasts who rouses desire—

He wanders in cold and circular symmetry,

She glows with a sinuous and sensuous fire.

            SUVARNAREKHA

 

 

No love game for these lovers

No love game for these lovers; all night

Two secret grievances corrupt delight.

Too proud to bend. Will hewill she

Make the first apology?

Their looks foretell that by dawn

War will cease…meantime, the night is gone.

SONNOKA

 

When she comes in from the rain

When she comes in from the rain
make-up ruined

blue sari clinging to her breasts

sculpting her lovely figure,

lucky is the lover

who helps her change her dress.

YOGESVARA

 

 

“Were you lying on champaks in the garden?”

“Were you lying on champaks in the garden?

Your breasts are red with their pollen.”

“Very clever! But these, begging your pardon,

Are thorn marks—

I went gathering flowers that had fallen.”

SONNOKA
