In response to Subbarao Varigonda's query,
matta kOkila is: ra-sa-ja-ja-bha-ra

But a better way to specify (I look for parsimonious representations) is
as 3(AB)+AG, where

        A - UI,  B - UII, and G - U

You can look at matta kOkila in several ways. Did you ever consider that
the candra-SEkharAshTakam, which goes as

        candra SEkhara candra SEkhara candra SEkhara pAhimAm
        candra SEkhara candra SEkhara candra SEkhara rakshamAm

is a matta kOkila!

If you split a matta kOkila line in two, as 2(AB) + ABAG they would look
like the last two lines of a "mutyAla saram". In general, "mutyAla saram"
is three lines of 2(AB) with a fourth line of ABAG, where

        A is any one of UI, III, IU
and     B is any one of UU, UII, IIU, IIII (note the absence of ja-IUI)
For example,

        sunna yidigO, sunna yadigO
        sunna pOyina sunna sunnE!
        sunnakunu mari sunna kalipina
                sunnayE migulun!

so two lines of a mutyAla saram will become a line of a matta kOkila, with
a little surgery at the end, when A is UI, and B is UII, as in

        dESamannanu pRema nuncumu manci yannadi pencumA
        vaTTi mATala kaTTi peTTumu, gaTTi mElonarincumA

coming back to Prasad's line, my mod for it (for yati) would be:

        mUga vOyenu kOkilal jagamun vasantamu rAganE!
