Song of Songs 7

 1   [1] How beautiful are your sandaled feet,
  O queenly maiden.
Your rounded thighs are like jewels,
  the work of a skilled craftsman.
 2  Your navel is perfectly formed
  like a goblet filled with mixed wine.
Between your thighs lies a mound of wheat
  bordered with lilies.
 3  Your breasts are like two fawns,
  twin fawns of a gazelle.
 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.
 5  Your head is as majestic as Mount Carmel,
  and the sheen of your hair radiates royalty.
  The king is held captive by its tresses.
 6  Oh, how beautiful you are!
  How pleasing, my love, how full of delights!
 7  You are slender like a palm tree,
  and your breasts are like its clusters of fruit.
 8  I said, "I will climb the palm tree
  and take hold of its fruit."
May your breasts be like grape clusters,
  and the fragrance of your breath like apples.
 9  May your kisses be as exciting as the best wine,
  flowing gently over lips and teeth. [9] 

Young Woman
 10  I am my lover's,
  and he claims me as his own.
 11  Come, my love, let us go out to the fields
  and spend the night among the wildflowers. [11] 
 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.
 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.
