Oh, Manini! Do not dislike me in your mind.
Oh one who is radiant with the fragrance of flowers, come and be with me on the couch.
Oh, one with a face like a moon! Why are you angry with me? My mind is always engrossed in you. You are adept in amorous sports. Oh, beloved! Please do fulfill my desires with your extremely sweet nectarine speech. Give me nectar of your lips and implicit faith in me without deceit.
The spring has arrived and it is the right and conducive time for indulging in amorous games. Let it not be wasted because of my bad luck. Why do you play hard to get? Oh, youthful one! My desire for you has increased upon seeing your youthful bosom.
One with a lotus-like navel! Do not tarry anymore in indulging with me in amorous sports. Oh, one whose form resembles emerald! Do not turn your face away from me. The beauty of radiance of your teeth mocks the jasmine buds. Please do pay heed to me.
