Original text and translations
O amica mea, sunt capilli tui sicut greges caprarum quae ascenderunt de monte Galaad.
Dentes tui sicut greges tonsarum quae ascenderunt de lavacro.
O my love, your hair is like a flock of goats, moving down mount Gilead.
Your teeth are like a flock of shorn ewes, that have come up from the washing. (Song of Songs, Chapter 4)
