Sri Banke Bihari ke sawaiya, 10 of 144

१०. Honey bee on flower
प्रेम पगे जु रँगे रँग साँवरे, माने मनाये न लालची नैना ।
धावत है उत ही जित मोहन रोके रुकै नहिं घूघट ऐना ॥
कानन को कल नाहिं परै बिन प्रीति में भीजे सुने मृदु बैना ।
‘रसखान’ भई मधु की मखियाँ अब नेह को बंधन क्यों हूँ छुटेना ॥

Bhakti poet Raskhan says: My eyes coloured by the love of Krishna, are greedy for Him. They go in search of Krishna, and cannot be restrained by a veil even. My ears are restless unless they hear the sweet message of Krishna. I feel attracted to Krishna, like a honey bee goes after nectar :-)
