10b  Surge propera amica mea et veni.
11  Iam hiems transiit, imber abiit et recessit,
12a  Flores apparuerunt in terra nostra, tempus putationis advenit.
13b  Surge propera amica mea, speciosa mea et veni,
14  Columba mea in foraminibus petrae, in caverna maceriae. Ostende mihi faciem tuam, sonet vox tua in auribus meis, Vox enim tua dulcis et facies tua decora.
