(A)How beautiful and (B)pleasant you are,
    O loved one, with all your delights![a]
Your stature is like a palm tree,
    and your breasts are like its clusters.
I say I will climb the palm tree
    and lay hold of its fruit.
Oh may your breasts be like (C)clusters of the vine,
    and the scent of your breath like apples,
and your (D)mouth[b] like the best wine.

She

It goes down smoothly for my beloved,
    gliding over lips and teeth.[c]

10 (E)I am my beloved's,
    (F)and his desire is for me.
