Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 16 Text 9

tam preksaniya-sukumara-ghanavadatam
srivatsa-pita-vasanam smita-sundarasyam
kridantam apratibhayam kamalodaranghrim
sandasya marmasu rusa bhujaya cachada

TRANSLATION

Kaliya saw that Sri Krsna, who wore yellow silken garments, was very delicate, His attractive body shining like a glowing white cloud, His chest bearing the mark of Srivatsa, His face smiling beautifully and His feet resembling the whorl of a lotus flower. The Lord was playing fearlessly in the water. Despite His wonderful appearance, the envious Kaliya furiously bit Him on the chest and then completely enwrapped Him in his coils.
