Weak?

From Poems From the Sanskrit , translated by John Brough ©1977:

No, but look here now, this is just absurd,
The way our famous poets talk of girls
As weak and winsome. Weak? Is this a word
To use of those who, with a shake of curls
And with the triumph of a modest glance,
Can lead the very gods a merry dance?

~Bhartŗhari
