This verse has an imaginative take on the poetic convention that the dark shadow on the moon’s surface is a deer (or sometimes a hare – but never a man).
दिवि निरीक्ष्य तृणप्रतिमं तमः ।
प्रकटितः सकलोऽपि विधुर्बलात् ॥
When the deer sitting upon the moon’s lap
saw the darkness in the sky
trimmed by the first rays of moonlight
it looked just like blades of grass.
Up he leapt
forcing the moon to rise –
or so it seemed –
and reveal his whole form.
