Her Beloved is Radiant

My beloved is radiant and ruddy,
outstanding among ten thousand.

His head is purest gold;
his hair is wavy
and black as a raven.

His eyes are like doves
by the water streams,
washed in milk,
mounted like jewels.

His cheeks are like beds of spice
yielding perfume.

His lips are like lilies
dripping with myrrh.

His arms are rods of gold
set with topaz.

His body is like polished ivory
decorated with lapis lazuli.

His legs are pillars of marble
set on bases of pure gold.

His appearance is like Lebanon,
choice as its cedars.

His mouth is sweetness itself;
he is altogether lovely.
