Dvaravati-sthasya harer virahah
Lord Krishna’s Feelings of Separation in Dvaraka

Verse 374

He does not wish the pastime
lotus flower. The moonlight does
not please Him. He does not try
to playfully talk with His doe-eyed
queens. He spends the evenings
sitting down, pale, wan, and languid,
without desiring to enjoy anything.
A vraja-gopi staying in His heart,
Lord Hari is stunned.

– Sri Sharana
