ते भीता उत्पतित्वान अलेना लेनसंज्ञिनो ।
असिपत्रवनं घोरं हन्यमाना उपागमि ॥ २५ ॥

te bhītā utpatitvāna alenā lenasaṃjñino |
asipatravanaṃ ghoraṃ hanyamānā upāgami || 25 ||

In their terror they run away, and deeming there was refuge where there was none, come all stricken to the terrible forest where the leaves are swords. (25)
