भुक्त्वा पीत्वा चिरं कालं बालपल्लवपेलवाम् ।
तनुतामेत्य यत्नेन विनाशमनुधावति ॥ ४२ ॥

bhuktvā pītvā ciraṃ kālaṃ bālapallavapelavām |
tanutāmetya yatnena vināśamanudhāvati || 42 ||

With all its food and drink for evermore, it is as tender as a leaflet and is reduced to leanness in spite of all our cares, and runs fast towards its dissolution.
