(Song of Songs 1:1-3 NIV) Solomon’s Song of Songs. She: Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth–for your love is more delightful than wine. Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the young women love you!
(Song of Songs 1:4-6 NIV) Take me away with you–let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers. Friends: We rejoice and delight in you; we will praise your love more than wine. How right they are to adore you! Dark am I, yet lovely, daughters of Jerusalem, dark like the tents of Kedar, like the tent curtains of Solomon. She:Do not stare at me because I am dark, because I am darkened by the sun. My mother’s sons were angry with me and made me take care of the vineyards; my own vineyard I had to neglect.
(Song of Songs 1:7 NIV) She:Tell me, you whom I love, where you graze your flock and where you rest your sheep at midday. Why should I be like a veiled woman beside the flocks of your friends?

(Song of Songs 1:9-14 NIV) He: I liken you, my darling (MYBF), to a mare among Pharaoh’s chariot horses. Your cheeks are beautiful with earrings, your neck with strings of jewels.
