The look

No it is not her looks.

...

It is her look.

...

A thousand words of desire
from a thousand nymphs
cannot match the one glance
that this daughter of Videha
gives when I emerge from the river
after my morning bath.

...

Because,

the moon with her million stars
still fades when the sun arrives alone.

- Told by Rama to Guha when asked why he did not take many wives like the kings of his time.
