केदारविरटद्भेककण्ठत्वक्कोणभङ्गुरे ।
वागुरावलये जन्तोः सुहृत्सुजनसंगमे ॥ २ ॥

kedāraviraṭadbhekakaṇṭhatvakkoṇabhaṅgure |
vāgurāvalaye jantoḥ suhṛtsujanasaṃgame || 2 ||

I have no credit in the durability of life, which is transient as the swelling that take place in the pouch of a frog while it croaks in the meadow. Nor have I any trust in the company of friends, which are as dangerous as the treacherous snare of hunters.
