Song of Solomon 2:10-13
My love answered
to me he said
my pretty darling,
- For the winter is past
the rain is gone and done with.
- The blooms can be seen in the land,
pruning/singing time is near
and the turtle-dove’s voice can be heard
- In our land the fig ripens her fruit
and the vines in blossom give off scent
my pretty darling
- (translation by W.G.E. Watson in Classical Hebrew Poetry, (Sheffield: JSOT Press, 1984) p.368)
