Your Love - Poem by Victor Phinda Mokoena
Your lips give me many kisses.
Your love is better than wine.
Your perfume smells wonderful.
But your name is better than the best Perfume.
That is why the young man love you.
Take me away with you,
And we will run away.
Let the king bring me into his room.
We are very happy for you.
We will say that your love is better than wine.
How right the women are to love you!
I am dark but lovely too, young women of Jerusalem.
I am dark like the tents of Kedar.
But I am beautiful as Solomon's curtains.
Do not stare at me because I am dark.
The sunshine has made me dark.
My brothers were angry with me.
They made me look after the vineyards.
So I could not look after my own vineyard.
You are the only person that I love.
Tell me where you feed your sheep.
Tell me where you rest your sheep at midday.
Or I will be like a woman who veils herself.
And I will sit among the flocks of your friends.
