    The translation of nardos to roses makes me sad. loses so much connotation that way, in exchange for being more accessible. Spikenards are valerian relatives, sedative, as well as a perfume. And there's biblical mention! in the Song of Solomon, which is the biblical companion piece to this poem. (Report)Reply
