May Lord Kesava’s hair: fine, thick, glorious, curling, glistening with a luster that rebukes the black bees’ splendor, aromatic as a blue lotus flower anointed with musk, splendid as Kamadeva’s flag and black camara, gracefully parted, and now become a deer-mark on the nectar moon of Radhika’s heart, appear before us.

 

Note: In Sanskrit literature the shadows on the moon are considered to resemble a deer. For this reason Lord Krsna’s hair is compared to the “deer in the moon”.
