I am a rose of Sharon,
...a lily of the valleys.
As a lily among brambles,
...so is my love among maidens. . .
. .My beloved is mine and I am his,
...he pastures his flock among the lilies.
Until the day breathes
...and the shadows flee,
turn, my beloved, be like a gazelle,
...or a young stag upon rugged mountains.
.....from Song of Solomon attributed to King Solomon
