Solomon's Love Expressed

1 "<,>How F57 F56 beautiful you R87 are, my darling,

How F57 beautiful you are!

Your eyes R88 are like doves behind R89 your veil;

Your hair R90 is like a flock of goats

That have descended from Mount Gilead. R91

2 "Your teeth R92 are like a flock of newly shorn ewes

Which have come up from their washing,

All of which bear twins,

And not one among them has lost F58 her young.

3 "Your lips are like a scarlet R93 thread,

And your mouth R94 is lovely.

Your temples R95 are like a slice of a pomegranate

Behind your veil.

4 "Your neck R96 is like the tower of David,

Built with F59 rows of stones

On which are hung R97 a thousand shields,

All the round shields R98 of the mighty men.

5 "Your two R99 breasts are like two fawns,

Twins of a gazelle

Which feed R100 among the lilies.

6 "Until R101 the F60 cool of the day

When the shadows flee away,

I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh R102

And to the hill of frankincense. R102

7 "You R103 are altogether beautiful, my darling,

And there is no blemish in you.

8 "Come with me from Lebanon, R104 my bride, R105

May you come with me from Lebanon.

Journey F61 down from the summit of Amana, R106

From the summit of Senir R107 and Hermon,

From the dens of lions,

From the mountains of leopards.

9 "You have made my heart beat faster, my R108 sister, my bride;

You have made my heart beat faster with a single glance of your eyes,

With a single strand of your necklace. R109

10 "How R110 beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride!

How much better R111 is your love than wine,

And the fragrance R112 of your oils

Than all kinds of spices! F62

11 "Your lips, my bride, drip R113 honey; R114

Honey and milk are under your tongue,

And the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance R115 of Lebanon.

12 "A garden locked is my sister, my bride,

A rock F63 garden locked, a spring R116 sealed R117 up.

13 "Your shoots are an orchard R118 F64 of pomegranates R119

With choice R120 fruits, henna R121 with nard plants,

14 Nard R122 and saffron, calamus and cinnamon, R123

With all the trees of frankincense, R124

Myrrh R125 and aloes, along with all the finest spices. F65

15 "You are a garden spring,

A well of fresh R126 F66 water,

And streams flowing from Lebanon."

16 "Awake, F67 O north wind,

And come, wind of the south;

Make my garden R127 breathe out fragrance,

Let its spices F68 be F69 wafted abroad.

May my R128 beloved come into his garden

And eat its choice R129 fruits!"
