Srimati Radharani’s Reply

Verse 233

O Alansangi, I know how
to display an angry silence.
I know how to speak crooked
sarcastic words, and I know
how to angrily knit My eyebrows
in hundreds of ways. If I do not
become overwhelmed by the sound
of the flute on Lord Krishna’s lotus
mouth, I know how to display
all these angry features.
