Mental Disturbance caused by the Beauty of the Princess
Is this jewelled female a celestial, a choice peahen,
or a human being ? My mind is perplexed.
This female beauty returning my looks is like a celestial maiden
coming with an army to contend against me.
I never knew before what is called Yama; I see it now;
it is the eyes that carry on a great fight with (the help of) female qualities.
These eyes that seem to kill those who look at them are
as it were in hostilities with this feminine simplicity.
Is it Yama, (a pair of) eyes or a hind ?-
Are not all these three in the looks of this maid ?
Her eyes will cause (me) no trembling sorrow,
if they are properly hidden by her cruel arched eye-brows.
The cloth that covers the firm bosom of this maiden is (like) that
which covers the eyes of a rutting elephant.
On her bright brow alone is destroyed even that power of mine
that used to terrify the most fearless foes in the battlefield.
Of what use are other jewels to her who is adorned with modesty,
and the meek looks of a hind ?
Unlike boiled honey which yields delight only when it is drunk,
love gives pleasure even when looked at.
