क्वचित्स्फीतमहारत्ना क्वचिल्लोलाम्बुजोत्पला ।
क्वचिन्नीहारकबरी सरसीदर्पणा क्वचित् ॥ ११ ॥

kvacitsphītamahāratnā kvacillolāmbujotpalā |
kvacinnīhārakabarī sarasīdarpaṇā kvacit || 11 ||

There were the bright swelling gems in some part of it, and the blooming and full blown lotuses on another; some parts of it were veiled by tufts of snow, and crystal streams gliding as glassy mirrors on others.
