Reading

From a Song of Solomon: review by The Lady Jane Fellowes from a Nave

My dear speaks and says to me: “Arise, my love, my satisfactory one, and come away; for now a winter is past, a sleet is over and gone.

The flowers seem on a earth; a time of singing has come, and a voice of a turtle-dove is listened in a land.

The fig tree puts onward a figs, and a vines are in blossom; they give onward fragrance.

Arise, my love, my satisfactory one, and come away.”

Set me as a pointer on your heart, as a pointer on your arm; for adore is clever as death, passion extreme as a grave.

Its flashes are flashes of fire, a distracted flame. Many waters can't moisten love, conjunction can floods drown it.

If one offering for adore all a resources of one’s house, it would be definitely scorned.
