|Kanan Devi in Vidyapati, 1937|
Now youth advanced, childhood withdrew,
Her eyes have caught the dancing of her feet,
Twin eyes performed the task of messengers,
Her laughter hid, and shame was born.
Continually she sets her hand upon her robe.
Speaks every word with hanging head:
Her hips have gained their full-grown glory -
She leans on her companions when she walks.
