கற்றுக் கறவைக் கணங்கள் பலகறந்து

செற்றார் திறலழியச் சென்று செருச்செய்யும்

குற்றம் ஒன்றில்லாத கோவலர்த்தம் பொற்கொடியே!
புற்றுஅரவு அல்குல் புனமயிலே! போதராய்
சுற்றத்து தோழிமார் எல்லாரும் வந்து நின்
முற்றம் புகுந்து முகில் வண்ணன் பேர்பாட
சிற்றாதே பேசாதே செல்வ பெண்டாட்டி! நீ
எற்றுக்கு உறங்கும் பொருளேலோர் எம்பாவாய்.

This song is sung to wake up a Gopika who thinks that Kannan should long for his gopikas ,undertake vows and come and meet them rather than the Gopikas take the vow to reach him.  I love this Gopika for sure.

Hey ,Young girl, the one who is born in the yadhava kula where all the cows are as young as calves that  their udders can be milked continuously by the men, the place where there are brave kshatriyas(warriors) who go directly to the enemies place and kill them with valor

Just like the King cobra,who never comes outside of the snakehole, you have hidden yourself (denotes the control of the senses and staying in touch with the inner self consantly), the one  who is as beautiful and graceful with features of a  peacock  , Wake up!

We are waiting outside your house, singing glory about Krishna, the one who’s skin color is that of the dark clouds and immersed in bliss.You do not seem to move nor are you opening you mouth. What kind of sleep state are you in?Why do you have so much attachment to this sleep? Wake up , come and join us


P.S. It is out of love for Krishna that i have attempted this translation. A million apologies to all the scholars and the learned if i have committed any mistake(s) .
