Verse for the Week

स्त्रीणां विहाय वदनेषु शशाङ्कलष्मीं

काम्यं च हंसवचनं मणिनूपुरेषु

बन्धूककान्तिमधरेषु मनोहरेषु

क्वापि प्रयाति सुभगा शरदागमश्रीः

Leaving the splendour of the moon in women’s faces,

The irresistable call of the swan in their jewelled anklets

And the beauty of the bandhuka tree in their entrancing lower lips

Autumn’s beautiful radiance passes elsewhere.

Verse 25, third sarga, Ritusamhara – Kalidasa
