Rose of Sharon “the flower of the field”
“the desert shall bloom like the rose.” Isaiah 35:1
“I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.” Song of Songs 2:1
The woman says: I am a lily of Sharon, a rose of the valley. The first part is spoken by a woman, who is called by her lover “darling” in the Song of Songs.
The man replies: You ARE like a rose – and the rest of the girls are like thorns! Her lover responds by saying, “like a lily among thorns, so is my darling among the maidens.”
The woman responds: And you’re like an apple tree among all the other trees of the forest – your shade is delightful and your fruit is sweet. Take me to your banquet hall and demonstrate your love for me. Fill me with wine and cover my bed with your fragrant apples. Hold me in your embrace. The rest of you girls, do not come between me and my man! My beloved is coming, gracefully like a gazelle. He is peeking at me from behind the wall.
My love calls me to come away with him because winter has passed and spring has arrived. The land is full of flowers, singing birds, fresh figs and aromatic grapes. My lover compares me to a dove in the cleft of a rock and he asks that I reveal myself so that he might see me and hear my voice. I ask that he seize people who, cunning as foxes, might try to come between us. I am my beloved’s and he is mine; he stays here, among the roses. When the sun was high, however, I caused him to depart like one to a distant mountain.
