Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.31.15
aṭati yad bhavān ahni kānanaḿ
truṭi yugāyate tvām apaśyatām
kuṭila-kuntalaḿ śrī-mukhaḿ ca te
jaḍa udīkṣatāḿ pakṣma-kṛd dṛśām
aṭati — travel; yat — when; bhavān — You; ahni — during the daytime; kānanam — to the forest; truṭi — about 1/1700 of a second; yugāyate — becomes like an entire millennium; tvām — You; apaśyatām — for those who do not see; kuṭila — curling; kuntalam — with locks of hair; śrī — beautiful; mukham — face; ca — and; te — Your; jaḍaḥ — foolish; udīkṣatām — for those who are eagerly looking; pakṣma — of lids; kṛt — the creator; dṛśām — of the eyes.
When You go off to the forest during the day, a tiny fraction of a second becomes like a millennium for us because we cannot see You. And even when we can eagerly look upon Your beautiful face, so lovely with its adornment of curly locks, our pleasure is hindered by our eyelids, which were fashioned by the foolish creator.
