Shulammite: The Woman in Solomon’s Song of Songs
by Susan Dubin
Come, come to me, my love, my fair one.
I am the one for whom your soul seeks.
Come to me.
Taste the honey of my lips.
Sip the spiced wine of my kiss.
My breasts are two fawns seeking you in the fields.
My navel is a round goblet, ready to overflow with your love.
I yearn for your love, my shepherd, my fair one.
Come, come to me.
Return, my love, my fair one.
I am the only daughter of my mother.
I wait for you in the garden.
I will wait by the bed of spices.
Surely you will come to me.
You have tasted my grapes and pomegranates.
Return, my beloved.
My vineyard, O Solomon, is yours.
Make haste, my beloved.
Mountains of spices surround me.
Embrace me with your right hand.
Set me as a seal upon your heart.
You will look into my eyes and know peace.
