SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

Translation by U.Ve. Dr. V.N. Vedanta Desikan Swamin:

303. prathiBhavanamananyE pAdhukE! thvathpraBhAvAth
     viviDhavapuShi dhEvE viBhramadhyUthakAlE
     glahayathi rahasi thvAm ShOdashasthrIsahasram

Oh Paaduka! I recall an instance to establish Your greatness. Krishna 
took myriad forms; each one spent his time with one Gopa damsel; while 
doing so, he did not ever think of any one else; there were sixteen 
thousand damsels engaged by Krishna in as many identical forms; each 
would like to prevent Krishna from going out to another, when a game 
of dice was being gone through. Each in every home demanded You as the 
stake against Krishna leaving in the midst. This, in secret! 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan
