Translation:
My beloved is to me a sachet of myrrh that lies between my breasts
          (chapter 1, verse 13)

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—
for your love is more delightful than wine
          (chapter 1, verse 1)

Come away, my beloved,
and be like a gazelle
or like a young stag
on the spice-laden mountains
          (chapter 8, verse 14)
