Song of Songs

 I belong to my love, 
and his desire is for me.
Come, my love,
let us go to the fields.
We will spend the night in the villages,
and in the early morning we go to the vineyards.
We will see if the vines are budding,
if their blossoms are opening,
if the pomegranate trees are in flower.
Then I will give you 
the gift of my love.
The mandrakes yield their fragrance,
the most exquisite fruits are at our doors;
the new as well as the old,
I have stored them for you, my love.

–New Jerusalem Bible, 7:10-13
