bṛhat-sāma tathā sāmnāṁ
gāyatrī chandasām aham
māsānāṁ mārga-śīrṣo ’ham
ṛtūnāṁ kusumākaraḥ

‘Similarly, of Sāma-chants, I am the Bṛihat-Sāma;
of poetic metres, I am Gāyatrī; of months, I am Mārgaśīrsha1; of seasons, I am the Flowery2.’

Of Sāma-chants (Vide X-22), I am Bṛihat-Sāma; of Vedic (holy) metres, I am Gāyatrī.

Kusumākara, or the Season of flowers = Vasanta3.
