śatakatrayam 1.63: padmākaraṃ dinakaro vikacaṃ karoti (the sun brings to bloom)

by Jahnabi Barooah

पद्माकरं दिनकरो विकचं करोति
चन्द्रो विकासयति कैरवचक्रवालम् ।
नाभ्यर्थितो जलधरोऽपि जलं ददाति
सन्त: स्वयं परहिते विहिताभियोगा: ।।६३।।
नीतिशतके

the sun brings to bloom
swarms of lotuses;
the moon unfurls
a sea of water lilies;
even without being requested,
a cloud also rains water.
are the virtuous not always
devoted to helping others? ||63||
