Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.18.6
dravat-purīṣyāḥ pulinaiḥ samantataḥ
na yatra caṇḍāḿśu-karā viṣolbaṇā
bhuvo rasaḿ śādvalitaḿ ca gṛhṇate
agādha — very deep; toya — whose water; hradinī — of the rivers; taṭa — upon the shores; ūrmibhiḥ — by the waves; dravat — liquefied; purīṣyāḥ — whose mud; pulinaiḥ — by the sandy banks; samantataḥ — on all sides; na — not; yatra — upon which; caṇḍa — of the sun; aḿśu-karāḥ — the rays; viṣa — like poison; ulbaṇāḥ — fierce; bhuvaḥ — of the earth; rasam — the juice; śādvalitam — the greenness; ca — and; gṛhṇate — take away.
With their flowing waves the deep rivers drenched their banks, making them damp and muddy. Thus the rays of the sun, which were as fierce as poison, could not evaporate the earth's sap or parch its green grass.
