'My beloved is white and ruddy,
pre-eminent above ten thousand.
His head is as the most fine gold,
his locks are curled, and black as a raven.
His eyes are like doves beside the water-brooks;
washed with milk, and fitly set.
His cheeks are as a bed of spices,
as banks of sweet herbs;
his lips are as lilies, dropping with flowing myrrh.
His hands are as rods of gold set with beryl;
his body is as polished ivory

His mouth is most sweet;
yea, he is altogether lovely.
This is my beloved, and this is my friend,
O daughters of Jerusalem.' (Songs of Songs)

and let thy breasts be as clusters of the vine,
and the smell of thy countenance like apple
