dwelt in 2Ujjain, when 'milk and honey flowed', four chums
By 3apurva maitri and incomparable 4aikyata, they passed
Though belonged to diverse castes and jobs they're inseparable
By typical perseverance, each acquired proficiency incomparable.
The first's a potter and his artistry in sculpture's of high quality
Tae second, a weaver whose dexterity was an object of envy by the best
The third, a goldsmith shone as bright as Sun among his men for quality
The last a 5mantrika, much dreaded, but harmless man of the type
They fancied one day to create one representing all skills they owned-
Soon, the potter absorbing himself made an angel of wonderous beauty, Enchanted
by its beauty, the second wove a shimmering garb and adorned
The third beautified it with gold jewels, noted for rarity and oddity.
ravishing one roused prema in 6mantrika and in turn his potent wand
When placing on her head, she moved about with speech at command
As she combined traits of 7koel and 8hamsa, she looked
like a damsel
And enkindled love in all, so each claimed the hand of that damsel
