A TIME OF LOVERS 

A time for lovers, my bride:
Come to my garden;
A time for lovers, my bride:
Come to my garden:
The vine has blossomed,
The pomegranates have budded.

A time for lovers, my bride:
Come to my garden;
A time for lovers, my bride:
Come to my garden;
The vine has blossomed,
The pomegranates have budded.
The vine has blossomed,
The pomegranates have budded.

The rain is gone,
Winter is over;
The rain is gone,
Winter is over.
Arise, my loving companion,
For desire grows strong.
Arise, my loving companion,
For desire grows strong.

A group of us went down
To graze in the gardens;
A group of us went down
To graze in the gardens;
There, in the house, is my love,
Your eyes are like doves;
There, in the house, is my love,
Your eyes are like doves;

Beautiful and pleasant,
Your teeth are like snow;
Beautiful and pleasant,
Your teeth are like snow.
Honey and milk under your tongue,
Honey and milk under your tongue.

A time for lovers, my bride:
Come to my garden;
A time for lovers, my bride:
Come to my garden;
The vine has blossomed,
The pomegranates have budded.
The vine has blossomed,
The pomegranates have budded.
