"How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O aprince's daughter! The curves of your hips are like jewels, The work of the hands of an artist.
"Your navel is like a round goblet Which never lacks mixed wine; Your belly is like a heap of wheat Fenced about with lilies.
"Your atwo breasts are like two fawns, Twins of a gazelle.
"Your aneck is like a tower of ivory, Your eyes like the pools in bHeshbon By the gate of Bath-rabbim; Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon, Which faces toward Damascus.
"Your head crowns you like aCarmel, And the flowing locks of your head are like purple threads; The king is captivated by your tresses.
"How abeautiful and how delightful you are, My love, with all your charms!
"Your stature is like a palm tree, And your breasts are like its clusters.
"I said, 'I will climb the palm tree, I will take hold of its fruit stalks.' Oh, may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, And the fragrance of your breath like aapples,
And your amouth like the best wine!"
"aI am my beloved's, And his bdesire is for me.
"Come, my beloved, let us go out into the country, Let us spend the night in the villages.
"Let us rise early and go to the vineyards; Let us asee whether the vine has budded And its blossoms have opened, And whether the pomegranates have bloomed. There I will give you my love.
"The amandrakes have given forth fragrance; And over our doors are all bchoice fruits, Both new and old, Which I have saved up for you, my beloved.
