Song of Solomon 2:10-17 NIV

10 My lover spoke and said to me, "Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.
11 See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.
12 Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree forms its early fruit;1 the blossoming2 vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me."
