Lyrics 

kathitasamaye’pi harirahaha na yayau vanam |
mama viphalam idam amalarūpam api yauvanam ||1||

yāmi he kam iha śaraṇaṃ sakhī-jana-vacana-vañcitā ||dhruvapadam||

yadanugamanāya niśi gahanam api śīlitam |
tena mama hṛdayam idam asama-śara-kīlitam ||2||

mama maraṇam eva varam iti vitatha-ketanā |
kim iha viṣahāmi virahānalam acetanā ||3||

mām ahaha vidhurayati madhura-madhu-yāminī |
kāpi harim anubhavati kṛta-sukṛta-kāminī ||4||

ahaha kalayāmi valayādi-maṇi-bhūṣaṇam |
hari-viraha-dahana-vahanena bahu-dūṣaṇam ||5||

kusuma-sukumāra-tanum atanu-śara-līlayā |
sragapi hṛdi hanti mām ativiṣama-śilayā ||6||

aham iha nivasāmi na-gaṇita-vana-vetasā |
smarati madhusūdano mām api na cetasā ||7||

hari-caraṇa-śaraṇa-jayadeva-kavi-bhāratī |
vasatu hṛdi yuvatiriva komala-kalāvatī ||8||

    अत्र कश्चित् छन्दसः नामलक्षणे भणति चेदुपकृतोऽहं भवितास्मि, स्वपद्येषु प्रयोगे समर्थश्चापि।

    • Mohan says:

      भद्र, इदं पद्यं नैव, किन्तु गान-विशेषम् । एतेषां न कोऽपि निबद्धो मात्रा-क्रमः वर्तते । राग-ताल-संयोजनं पठद्भिः एव प्रतिवारं करणीयम् । तदर्थमेव विविद-गान-क्रमाणाम् समाहारः अत्र कृतं ।
