The Bride's Admiration

1 "aI am the b1rose of 2Sharon, The 3lily of the valleys." 2 "cLike a lily among the thorns, So is 4my darling among the dmaidens." 3 "eLike an f5apple tree among the trees of the forest, So is my beloved among the gyoung men. In his shade I took great delight and sat down, And his 6fruit was sweet to my htaste. 4 "He has 7brought me to his ibanquet hall, And his 8banner over me is love. 5 "Sustain me with 9raisin cakes, Refresh me with j10apples, Because 11I am lovesick . 6 "Let 12his left hand be under my head And 13his right hand 14embrace me." 7 "kI 15adjure you, O 16daughters of Jerusalem, By the 17gazelles or by the 18hinds of the field, 19That you do not arouse or awaken my love Until lshe pleases." 8 "mListen! My beloved! Behold, he is coming, Climbing 20on the mountains, Leaping on the hills! 9 "My beloved is like a 21gazelle or a 22young nstag. Behold, he is standing behind our wall, He is looking through the windows, He is peering 23through the lattice. 10 "My beloved responded and said to me, '24Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, And come along. 11 'For behold, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone. 12 'The flowers have already appeared in the land; The time has arrived for opruning the vines, And the voice of the 25turtledove has been heard in our land. 13 'The 26fig tree has ripened its figs, And the 27vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance. Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, And come along!' " 14 "pO 28my dove, 29in the clefts of the qrock, In the secret place of the steep rpathway, Let me see your sform, 30Let me hear your voice; For your voice is sweet, And your tform is 31lovely." 15 "u32Catch the foxes for us, The vlittle foxes that are ruining the vineyards, While our 33vineyards are in blossom." 16 "w34My beloved is mine, and I am his; He 35pastures his flock among the lilies. 17 "36Until xthe cool of the day when the shadows flee away, Turn, my beloved, and be like a 37gazelle Or a young stag 38on the mountains of yBether."
