Govinda Das Kaviraj has written this song “E Dhani Mohe Na Karu Aru Chanda”. This song is taken from the book Padavali. In this song, Govinda Das Kaviraj wonderfully describes the speech between a gopi and Srimati Radharani, who is deeply pained due to being separated from Lord Krishna. The Gopi advises Srimati Radharani not to hide her feelings of separation from Lord Krishna.
e dhani mohe na karu aru chanda
janala bhetali syamara chanda
nisasi niharasi phutala kadamba
kara-tale badana saghana abalamba
ksane tanu modasi kari kata bhanga
abirala pulaka mukula bharu anga
bhaba ki gopasi gopata na raha-i
maramaka bedana badane saba kaha-i
yatane nibarasi nayanake lola
gadagada sabade kahasi adha bola
ana chale anga nayana chale pantha
saghane gatagati karasi ekanta
dure rahu gurujana-gauraba laja
gobinda-dasa kaha padala akaja
(Refrain) O beautiful gopi, you did not tell me anything. Still, I know what has happened. You must have met the dark moon Krsna.
(1) You stare. You sigh. With your sighs the kadamba trees burst into bloom. Your head rests in your hands.
(2) Sometimes you bend your body into how many awkward postures? Like budding flowers, the hairs of your body always stand erect.
(3) Why do you try to hide your feelings? You cannot hide them. The expression on your face proclaims the pain in your heart.
(4) You struggle to suppress the signs of what you feel. Your eyes are restless. You speak half words in a choked voice.
(5) On some pretext you carefully watch the path. Your purpose in watching is only one.
(6) Far away you have thrown all shyness and all respect for your elders and superiors. Govinda dasa says: Alas! This girl has fallen into mischief.
