Song of Solomon 71 Return, return, O Shulammith; return, return, that we may look upon thee. "What will ye see in the Shulammith?" As though it were the dance of a double company. 2 How beautiful are thy steps in sandals, O prince’s daughter! the roundings of thy thighs are like jewelled ornaments, the work of the hands of the artificer. 3 Thy navel is like a round goblet which lacketh not the mixed wine: thy body is like a heap of wheat fenced about with lilies. 4 Thy two breasts are like two fawns, the twins of the roe. 5 Thy neck is like a tower of ivory; thy eyes are like the pools in Cheshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim; thy nose is like the tower of Lebanon which looketh toward Damascus. 6 Thy head upon thee is like Carmel, and the hair of thy head like purple: a king is held bound in the tresses. 7 How beautiful and how pleasant art thou, O love, in thy attractions! 8 This thy stature is like a palm-tree, and thy breasts are like clusters of grapes. 9 I thought, I wish to climb up the palm-tree, I wish to take hold of its boughs; and, oh, that thy breasts might be like clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy nose like apples; 10 And thy palate like the best wine, that glideth down for my friend gently, exciting the lips of those that are asleep.— 11 I am my friend’s, and toward me is his desire. 12 Come, my friend, let us go forth into the field; let us spend the night in the villages; 13 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine have blossomed, whether the young grape have opened to the view, whether the pomegranates have budded: there will I give my caresses unto thee. The mandrakes give forth their smell, and at our doors are all manner of precious fruits, new and also old: O my friend, these have I laid up for thee.
