1How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince’s daughter! Your graceful legs are like jewels, the work of an artist’s hands.2Your navel is a rounded goblet that never lacks blended wine. Your waist is a mound of wheat encircled by lilies.3Your breasts are like two fawns, like twin fawns of a gazelle.4Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are the pools of Heshbon by the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon looking toward Damascus.5Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel. Your hair is like royal tapestry; the king is held captive by its tresses.6How beautiful you are and how pleasing, my love, with your delights!7Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit.8I said, “I will climb the palm tree; I will take hold of its fruit.” May your breasts be like clusters of grapes on the vine, the fragrance of your breath like apples,9and your mouth like the best wine. May the wine go straight to my beloved, flowing gently over lips and teeth.10I belong to my beloved, and his desire is for me.11Come, my beloved, let us go to the countryside, let us spend the night in the villages.12Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom— there I will give you my love.13The mandrakes send out their fragrance, and at our door is every delicacy, both new and old, that I have stored up for you, my beloved.
