“Have you seen the one I love?”

When I found the one I love.

Until I had brought him to the house of my mother,
And into the chamber of her who conceived me.

By the gazelles or by the does of the field,
Do not stir up nor awaken love
Until it pleases.

With sixty valiant men around it,

Because of fear in the night.

Its seat of purple,
Its interior paved with love
By the daughters of Jerusalem.

And see King Solomon with the crown
With which his mother crowned him
On the day of his wedding,
The day of the gladness of his heart.
