There are two looks in the dyed eyes of this (fair one);
one causes pain, and the other is the cure thereof.
A single stolen glance of her eyes is
more than half the pleasure (of sexual embrace).
She has looked (at men) and stooped (her head);
and that (sign) waters as it were (the corn of) our love.
When I look, she looks down;
when I do not, she looks and smiles gently.
She not only avoids a direct look at me,
but looks as it were with a half-closed eye and smiles.
Though they may speak harshly as if they were strangers,
the words of the friendly are soon understood.
Little words that are harsh and looks that are hateful are (but)
the expressions of lovers who wish to act like strangers.
When I look, the pitying maid looks in return and smiles gently;
and that is a comforting sign for me.
Both the lovers are capable of looking at each other
in an ordinary way, as if they were perfect strangers.
The words of the mouths are of no use whatever,
when there is perfect agreement between the eyes (of lovers).
