Krishna Approaches Radha

Krishna said, 'O fair beauty, who are you? 
Where do you live? Whose daughter are you? 
I never yet saw you in the lanes of Braj.' 

Radha said, 'What need have I to come this way? 
I keep playing by my door. 
But I hear that some son of Nanda 
is in the habit of stealing butter and curds.' 

Krishna said, 'Look, why should I appropriate 
anything that's yours? Come, let's play together.' 

Suradasa says: By his honied words, 
Krishna, the crafty prince of amorists, 
beguiled Radha and put her at ease.
