Rendering based on ALkoNdavilli gOvindhAchArya swAmy’s English translation of gIthA bhAshyam
‘Similarly, of Sāma-chants, I am the Bṛihat-Sāma;
of poetic metres, I am Gāyatrī; of months, I am Mārgaśīrsha[2. November-December, called the Agrahāyaṇa, or the month with which the year commenced at one time.]; of seasons, I am the Flowery[3. April-May (Vasanta).].’
Of Sāma-chants (Vide X-22), I am Bṛihat-Sāma; of Vedic (holy) metres, I am Gāyatrī.
Kusumākara, or the Season of flowers = Vasanta[4. April-May (Vasanta).].
