He Browses Among the Lilies


He says to her:

“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.

Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes

that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards

that are in bloom.”

She replies:

“My beloved is mine and I am his;

he browses among the lilies.

Until the day breaks and the shadows flee,

turn, my beloved, and be like a gazelle

or a young stag on the rugged hills.”


from the Song of Songs 2:14-17
