Madabhushi Sridhar's English Poem 14
In your backyard pond, red lotuses
Blossomed and black lilies closed,
Sages with white teeth wearing clothes,
Brick red in color, are going to temples to
Blow the sound of the conches,
In sweet words you promised to wake us up,
But breached, Shameless, O matured lady, Awake,
To worship Lotus eyed Vishnu, holding Conch and the Discus
In this 14th song, Goda is waking up the ninth Gopika and Tiruppani Alwar. Acharya prayed to in this song is "Srimannatha Munaye Namah".
The previous day this Gopika promised to wake all others up, but she was still sleeping. The red lotuses in the pond of your backyard are blossoming and black lillies (Nalla Kaluva) which open during the night are closing as the Sun rose. The ascetics with saffron robes and shining white teeth are on their way to the temple to blow the Conch. Oh clever speaking girl, please wake up, let us sing the praise of the Lord who is holding the Conch and the Chakra in His hands and who has such lotus-like eyes and worship him.
