Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 47: Verses 39-47

The Gopis said : By,good-luck Kamsa, the (sworn) enemy and persecutor of the Yadus, has been killed alongwith his followers. It is a matter for (further) gratification that Sri Krsna (the immortal Lord) is now doing well with His relations, who have attained all their objects (through Him). (Others said), Does Sri Krsna (elder Brother of Gada), who was (till the other day) greeted (by us) with our loving and pleasing glances accompanied by bashful smiles, bring delight to the women of the city (of Mathura), 0 gentle one? (Still others said,) How can He, an expert in love-making and (hence) beloved of charming women, help being won over (by them) when greeted with their (sweet) words and amorous gestures ? (Some more said,) Does Sri Krsna (the Protector of cows), 0 pious one, remember us, rustic women, in any context in the course of an unreserved talk in an assembly of the ladies of the city ? (Others said,) Does He (ever) recall those nights, during that period (of His stay in Vraja), when He sported with (us) His sweethearts in (the woodland of) Vrndavana, charming with lilies and jasmines as well as with a full moon (bearing a spot resembling the figure of a hare) in the ring of the Rasa dance accompanied by the sound of jingling anklets, in the course of which His delightful stories were sung (by us)?
Will Sri Krsna (a scion of Dasarha) ever come over here to infuse new life into us-tormented (as we are) with grief occasioned by (separation from) Him-by (the soothing touch of) His (delightful) limbs even as Indra (the god of rain) would refresh a forest (scorched with summer heat) by (sending) clouds (of rain)? (Still others said,) Wherefore should Sri Krsna come here now that He has slain His enemies and attained sovereignty and, surrounded by all His kinsmen (the Yadus), will feel (extremely) delighted when He has married (so many) princesses? (Some more wisely said,) What purpose of the high-souled Sri Krsna (the Spouse of Sri), who has (all) His desires fulfilled and is (ever) perfect in His (own) Self, could be served by us, dwelling in a forest, or (even) by other ladies (of royal descent)? Even Pingala, a wanton woman (of the legend), (once) spoke of hopelessness as the only road to supreme happiness. Though we know (all) that, our hope to meet Sri Krsna is nevertheless hard to overcome.
