She

I slept but my heart was awake.

Listen! My beloved is knocking:

“Open to me, my sister, my darling,

my dove,l my flawlessm one.n

My head is drenched with dew,

my hair with the dampness of the night.”

I have taken off my robe—

must I put it on again?

I have washed my feet—

must I soil them again?

My beloved thrust his hand through the latch-opening;

my heart began to pound for him.

I arose to open for my beloved,

and my hands dripped with myrrh,o

my fingers with flowing myrrh,

on the handles of the bolt.

I opened for my beloved,p

but my beloved had left; he was gone.q

My heart sank at his departure.a

I lookedr for him but did not find him.

I called him but he did not answer.

The watchmen found me

as they made their rounds in the city.s

They beat me, they bruised me;

they took away my cloak,

those watchmen of the walls!

Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge yout

if you find my beloved,u

what will you tell him?

Tell him I am faint with love.v
