During the rain Princess in black arrive to wear the garland worn by Arjun. Speak now wearing this necklace.  Cloaked in white a Queen’s friendship is forged in fire. The Lord Krishna’s abode beckons our Princess.  Bring for her every flower so that when supper is completed, she may embrace the gracious Anjona, and servant, Reba. Come Princess with your companions to settle near the banks of the river. Let your eyes be bathed in the deep blue of the waters. Witness the swans of sparkling white. The lightning appears in the horizon as a young girl, such is a Queen’s glory. Come princess to the abode of Brindaban, refuge of Orjun’s beloved, Lord Krishna.
