Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:1 - [fn]How beautiful are your sandaled feet,
O queenly maiden.
Your rounded thighs are like jewels,
the work of a skilled craftsman.
Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:2 - Your navel is perfectly formed
like a goblet filled with mixed wine.
Between your thighs lies a mound of wheat
bordered with lilies.
Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:3 - Your breasts are like two fawns,
twin fawns of a gazelle.
Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:4 - Your neck is as beautiful as an ivory tower.
Your eyes are like the sparkling pools in Heshbon
by the gate of Bath-rabbim.
Your nose is as fine as the tower of Lebanon
overlooking Damascus.

and the sheen of your hair radiates royalty.
The king is held captive by its tresses.

How pleasing, my love, how full of delights!
Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:7 - You are slender like a palm tree,
and your breasts are like its clusters of fruit.

and take hold of its fruit.”
May your breasts be like grape clusters,
and the fragrance of your breath like apples.

flowing gently over lips and teeth.[fn]

I am my lover’s,
and he claims me as his own.

and spend the night among the wildflowers.[fn]
Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:12 - Let us get up early and go to the vineyards
to see if the grapevines have budded,
if the blossoms have opened,
and if the pomegranates have bloomed.
There I will give you my love.
Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:13 - There the mandrakes give off their fragrance,
and the finest fruits are at our door,
new delights as well as old,
which I have saved for you, my lover.

Or in the villages.
