भृङ्गावदोलितलताकुलकाननान्तर्गायत्पुलिन्ददयिताननदत्तनेत्रम् ।

līlākulā gataghṛṇaṃ girigahvareṣu kiṃ ghnanti śatrumiva mugdhamṛgaṃ kirātāḥ || 40 ||

Behold the black bees sporting and swinging in their cradles of the flowery creepers of the forest; and to the Pulinda forester singing to his beloved, with his eyes fixed upon her face; and mark also the sportive Kirata, forgetting to kill the deer roving beside his lonely cavern.
