A Song Of Springtime by John William Waterhouse

The voice of my beloved!
    Behold, he comes,
leaping over the mountains,
    bounding over the hills.
 My beloved is like a gazelle
    or a young stag.
Behold, there he stands
    behind our wall,
gazing through the windows,
    looking through the lattice.
 My beloved speaks and says to me:
“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
    and come away,
 for behold, the winter is past;
    the rain is over and gone.
 The flowers appear on the earth,
    the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
    is heard in our land.
The fig tree ripens its figs,
    and the vines are in blossom;
    they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
    and come away.

  1. Such a lovely poem from the Bible. It’s one of my favourites. I used part of it in A Good Home.

  2. We read much of the Song of Songs at our wedding. I’ve always loved it.

    1. Some things are so beautiful there’s almost no words to describe. Song of Songs leaves me speechless. I’m glad I brought back a happy memory for you, Sharon.
