Come, my beloved, let us go out into the fields,
Let us spend the night in the villages. 12
Let us rise early and go to the vineyards;
Let us see whether the vine has flourished
And its blossoms have opened,
And whether the pomegranates have bloomed.
There I will give you my love. 13
The mandrakes have given forth fragrance;
And over our doors are all choice fruits,
Both new and old,
Which I have treasured up for you, my beloved.
