Canto 10 Chapter 15 Texts 10-12
kvacid gāyati gāyatsu
kala-vākyaiḥ śukaṁ kvacit
kvacit sa-valgu kūjantam
kvacic ca kāla-haṁsānām
barhiṇaṁ hāsayan kvacit
nāmabhir dūra-gān paśūn
kvacid āhvayati prītyā
Sometimes the honeybees in Vṛndāvana became so mad with ecstasy that they closed their eyes and began to sing. Lord Kṛṣṇa, moving along the forest path with His cowherd boyfriends and Baladeva, would then respond to the bees by imitating their singing while His friends sang about His pastimes. Sometimes Lord Kṛṣṇa would imitate the chattering of a parrot, sometimes, with a sweet voice, the call of a cuckoo, and sometimes the cooing of swans. Sometimes He vigorously imitated the dancing of a peacock, making His cowherd boyfriends laugh. Sometimes, with a voice as deep as the rumbling of clouds, He would call out with great affection the names of the animals who had wandered far from the herd, thus enchanting the cows and the cowherd boys.
