Text


Vidi, speciosam


sicut columbam ascendentem


desuper riuos aquarum


cuius inestimabilis odor erat


nimis in vestimentis eius


et sicut dies verni


circumdabant eam flores rosarum


et illia convallium.


 


[NEV]

Translation


I saw the fair one rising like a dove


above the streams of water.

Whose priceless fragance clung to her garments.

And as on a spring day, she was


surrounded by roses and lily-of-the-valley.

Who is this who rises from the desert


like a pillar of smoke from inciense of myrrh and frnakincense?


And as on a spring day, she was


surrounded by roses and lily-of-the-valley. 

 


[NEV]
