Amidst the stars’ dance, his playful spirit did play,

In tales of valour and compassion, he’d lead the way.

On Janmashtami’s Eve, devotees gather in delight,

To celebrate his birth, a beacon in the night.


With a flute’s enchanting tune, Krishna’s melody sways,

Through the darkness of ignorance, his message conveys.

In the cosmic dance of life, his presence takes flight,

A symbol of devotion and truth, burning ever so bright.


So, on this Janmashtami, let us remember the divine,

Krishna’s grace and teachings are like stars that forever shine.

In the embrace of faith, on this night so stark,

His love guides us through, lighting up the dark.
