Veni in hortum meum, soror, o sponsa,
et mala punicorum gusta fragantia,
si qua desideras, revertere ad tuos.
O Sunamitis, speciosa valde.
(cf. Canticum Canticorum 5:1, 6:10-12)

Come into my garden, o sister, my spouse,
and the strongly scented pomegranates,
as you had wished, will once more be yours.
O Sunamite [Shulamite], intensely beautiful.
(after Solomon's Song of Songs, 5:1, 6:10-12))
