The love of a lover

Song of Songs Chapter 2

She

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

He

2    Like a lily among thorns
      is my darling among the maidens.

She

3    Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest
      is my lover among the young men.
      I delight to sit in his shade,
      and his fruit is sweet to my taste.
4    He has taken me to the banquet hall,
      and his banner over me is love.
5    Strengthen me with raisins,
      refresh me with apples,
      for I am faint with love.

...

He

14  My dove in the clefts of the rock,
      in the hiding places on the mountainside,
      show me your face,
      let me hear your voice;
      for your voice is sweet,
      and your face is lovely.

...

She

16  My lover is mine and I am his;
      he browses among the lilies.

17  Until the day breaks
      and the shadows flee,
      turn, my lover,
      and be like a gazelle
      or like a young stag
      on the rugged hills.
