Chapter 2

1


 

  I am a rose of Sharon, A lily of the valleys.  

 

 


2


 

  As a lily among thorns, So is my love among the daughters.  

 

 


3


 

  As the apple-tree among the trees of the wood, So is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, And his fruit was sweet to my taste.  

 

 


4


 

  He brought me to the banqueting-house, And his banner over me was love.  

 

 


5


 

  Stay ye me with raisins, refresh me with apples; For I am sick from love.  

 

 


6


 

  His left hand [is] under my head, And his right hand doth embrace me.  

 

 


7


 

  I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, By the roes, or by the hinds of the field, That ye stir not up, nor awake [my] love, Until he please.  

 

 


8


 

  The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh, Leaping upon the mountains, Skipping upon the hills.  

 

 


9


 

  My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: Behold, he standeth behind our wall; He looketh in at the windows; He glanceth through the lattice.  

 

 


10


 

  My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.  

 

 


11


 

  For, lo, the winter is past; The rain is over and gone;  

 

 


12


 

  The flowers appear on the earth; The time of the singing [of birds] is come, And the voice of the turtle-dove is heard in our land;  

 

 


13


 

  The fig-tree ripeneth her green figs, And the vines are in blossom; They give forth their fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.  

 

 


14


 

  O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, In the covert of the steep place, Let me see thy countenance, Let me hear thy voice; For sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.  

 

 


15


 

  Take us the foxes, the little foxes, That spoil the vineyards; For our vineyards are in blossom.  

 

 


16


 

  My beloved is mine, and I am his: He feedeth [his flock] among the lilies.  

 

 


17


 

  Until the day be cool, and the shadows flee away, Turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart Upon the mountains of Bether.
