कुहू... कुहू... कुहू... कुहू...
कोकिलस्य कुहू-कुहू-कूजनम्.
कुहु-कुहु-कुहु-कूजनम्,
किं निसर्ग-देव-मन्त्र-पूजनम् ।

सुन्दरी सुगन्धिनी राजते वसुन्धरा,

कोकिलस्य कुहू-कुहू-कूजनम् ।
कुहु-कुहु-कुहु-कूजनम्,
कुहू-कुहू-कूजनम् ॥ [५]

[The Cooing of Cuckoo]

Sweet is the cooing of cuckoo.
Does it form worship
with chanting of incantations
for the deity of Nature ? [0]
*
Here shines the Earth
beautiful with fair fragrance.
The Night smiling with moon-beams
looks very much attractive.
O ! Come and place here
some sprinkling of divine drops.
Sweet is the cooing of cuckoo. [1]
*
The Beauty of Spring cherishes
for glory of love-dominion,
also for vast opulence of flowers
emerging from the mind of lovers.
O ! Come please
and set the mellifluous humming
enchanting in contact with the black-bee.
Sweet is the cooing of cuckoo. [2]
*
The gentle zephyr blows here.
Excellent is the attractive aroma.
The Creeper rejoices in dalliance
united with the loving Tree.
O ! Come here
and for the dear one,
offer the conjugal auspiciousness
pleasant to the mind.
Sweet is the cooing of cuckoo. [3]
*
Here is the charming damsel
bearing nobility with the hue of love.
The golden–figured lady is swinging
with the waves of sentiments.
O ! Come and place something
that eradicates the pride
of the self-conceited maidens.
Sweet is the cooing of cuckoo. [4]
*
In the ocean of life
unstable with pains and pleasures,
every moment, the bark
experiences ups and downs.
O ! Behold thereof
the best creation of pearls
in the oyster of love.
Sweet is the cooing of cuckoo. [5]
