Latin.png Latin text

Guttur tuum sicut vinum optimum, dignum dilecto meo ad potandum,
labiisque et dentibus illius ad ruminandum
Ego dilecto meo et ad me conversio eius.

English.png English translation

Thy throat like the best wine, worthy for my beloved to drink,
and for his lips and his teeth to ruminate.
I to my beloved, and his turning is towards me.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Je mond is als de beste wijn,
die waard is door mijn liefste gedronken te worden, en met zijn lippen en tanden geproefd te worden.
Ik ben van mijn liefste en hij is van mij.
