11 For now the winter is past;
the rain has ended and gone away.
12 The blossoms appear in the countryside.
The time of singing[a] has come,
and the turtledove’s cooing is heard in our land.(A)
13 The fig tree ripens its figs;(B)
the blossoming vines give off their fragrance.(C)
Arise, my darling.
Come away, my beautiful one.
