केशकज्जलधारिण्यो दुःस्पर्शा लोचनप्रियाः ।
दुष्कृताग्निशिखा नार्यो दहन्ति तृणवन्नरम् ॥ ११ ॥

keśakajjaladhāriṇyo duḥsparśā locanapriyāḥ |
duṣkṛtāgniśikhā nāryo dahanti tṛṇavannaram || 11 ||

Women are the flames of vice, their black-dyed eye and hairs are as their smoke and soot. They are as intangible as fire, though pleasing to the sight. They burn the man as fire consumes the straw.
