Song of Solomon 2:10-13,16
10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
16 My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.
My beloved spake, Z.28, composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695)
