(1478 - 1581 / India)

Awake O! Prince Of Braj

Awake, Krishna,
awake the lotus-petals
open the water-lilies droop
the bumblebees have left
the creepers cocks crow,
and birds chirp on the trees.
The cows are in the byre lowing;
they run after their calves;
the moon fades before the sun.
Men and women arise
and joyfully sing their songs;
Krishna, of hands lotus-like awake,
for the day is about to dawn.

O Krishna, the people (jivas) are waking up. They have begun to do their duties, they may need your help, your hope, your presence, your love. They may be tired, or hopeless, frustrated or fed up, they may have wins which they may want to show off, wake up therefore to be with them, for they have begun to work. If they fail or fret, they will say it was because Krishna stayed asleep.... so wake up Kanha...!
