The Dalliance of the Leopards, Ancient Hindi Poem

Very afraid
I saw the dalliance of the leopards.
In the beauty of their coats
They sought each other and embraced.
Had I gone between them then
And pulled them asunder
By their manes
I would have run less risk
Then when I passed in my boat
And saw you standing on a dead tree
Ready to dive and kindle the river.
