Verse 1.5.11

का ते पुत्र घना चिन्तेत्येवं रामं पुनः पुनः ।
अपृच्छत्स्निग्धया वाचा नैवाकथयदस्य सः ॥ ११ ॥

kā te putra ghanā cintetyevaṃ rāmaṃ punaḥ punaḥ |
apṛcchatsnigdhayā vācā naivākathayadasya saḥ || 11 ||

Dasaratha asked Rama repeatedly and in a gentle voice (to tell him) what his anxiety was, and what was the cause of his thoughtfulness; but he returned no answer to it.
