    Sanskrit Text :

    स्मितज्योत्स्नाजालं तव वदनचन्द्रस्य पिबतां
    चकोराणामासीदतिरसतया चञ्चुजडिमा
    अतस्ते शीतांशोरम्रुतलहरी अम्लरुचयः
    पिबन्ति स्वच्छन्दं निशि निशि भृशं काञ्जिकधिया

    Transliteration :

    smitha jyOtsnA jalam tava vadana candrasya pibatAm
    cakOrANAm AsId atirasatayA cancu jaDimA
    atas tE shItAmshOr amrutalaharIm amla rucayah
    pibanti svacchhandam nishi nishi bhrusham kaanjika dhiya

    Meaning :

    The Chakora birds, feel that their beaks have been numbed, by forever drinking, the sweet nectar like light emanating from your moon like face, and for a change wanted to taste something sour. Thus, they have started freely drinking, the white rays of the moon in the sky, night after night, thinking that is is sour rice gruel.

    (SOUNDARYALAHARI – SLOKAM 63)
