कदा मे स्यान्महारक्षोविद्रावणकरं स्मितम् ।
स्वस्फिग्वाद्यैररण्यान्यां कदा नृत्येयमुन्मदा ॥ २८ ॥

kadā me syānmahārakṣovidrāvaṇakaraṃ smitam |
svasphigvādyairaraṇyānyāṃ kadā nṛtyeyamunmadā || 28 ||

When will those tender smiles return to me, whereby I moved the great Rakshasas to my favour; and when shall I dance in my giddy circles, at the music of the tabor amidst the forests.
