and the hill of frankincense. You are absolutely beautiful, my darling,

gliding past my lips and teeth!

covered with sapphires. His legs are alabaster pillars
set on pedestals of pure gold.

as majestic as the cedars. His mouth is sweetness.
He is absolutely desirable.
This is my love, and this is my friend,
young women of Jerusalem.
