For Sita – 63

Greatest fortune in the world to belong,

To winner of contest, of princes most strong.


Just Shankara’s bow lift,

And Janaka’s daughter your gift.


A virtuous and beautiful lady to guide,

In righteousness over subjects to preside.


But only one man for Janaki is meant,

He who to the bow by Vishvamitra was sent.
