Verse 1.13.18

लहरीवैकरूपेण पदं क्षणमकुर्वती ।
चला दीपशिखेवातिदुर्ज्ञेयगतिगोचरा ॥ १८ ॥

laharīvaikarūpeṇa padaṃ kṣaṇamakurvatī |
calā dīpaśikhevātidurjñeyagatigocarā || 18 ||

Unsteady as the wave, she is never steady in any place; (but is ever wavering to all sides) like the flickering flame of a lamp. So her leaning is known to nobody.
