Govinda Das Kaviraj has written this song “Saye Kiba Sei Nayana Cahani”. This song is taken from the book Padavali. In this song, Govinda Das Kaviraj describes the enchanting beauty of Lord Krishna, seeing which Srimati Radharani has fallen in love with Him.
saye kiba se-i nayana cahani
hasira holole more parana-putali dole
dite ca-i yaubana nichani
bhale se candana canda kamini mohana phanda
andhare kariyache ala
meghera upara kiba sada-i udaya kare
nisi disi sasi sola-kala
kiba se cudara thata dasa nakha canda nata
aparupa bamsi baja-ite
hera-ite se-i mukha mane haya yata sukha
jite ki pariye pasarite
kula sila yata chila mane lage saba gela
dekhiya bareka se-i rupa
gobinda-dasera cite aichana magaye go
naba anuragera swarupa
(Refrain) I gaze at Him with my eyes. The puppet of my life-breath is tossed to and fro by the waves of His smiles. I gaze at Him. I worship His youthful grace.
(1) The sandal-paste-moon on His forehead is a trap to charm and catch beautiful girls. It is effulgence that lights up the darkness. He is a raincloud where rests a full moon that lights up the night.
(2) His hair is graceful. The ten moons of His fingernails dance as He plays His wonderful flute. When I gaze at His face, my heart is filled with bliss. I am overcome. How can I forget Him?
(3) Now that I have once seen His handsome form, I find that piety, good character, and all else have fled from my heart. In his heart Govinda dasa prays that in this way he may also fall in love with Lord Krsna.
