Song of Songs 5:10-16 (Revised)

My husband, you are bright and handsome,
Outstanding among all the men I know.
Your head is round like a gold krugerrand
your remaining hair is straight
dark brown like bear’s fur.
Your eyes are like points of light
Reflections in streams of water
washed in snow,
mounted above like the Big Dipper.
Your cheeks are forest floors
yielding soft fragrance.
Your lips are like strawberries
dipped in chocolate.
Your arms are branches of cedar
inlaid with pine.
Your body is like the trunk of a mighty oak
decorated with polished cherry.
Your legs are I-beams of cast steel
driven deep into the earth.
Your appearance is like the Grand Canyon
Your mouth is tart sweetness itself;
Like the first bite of key lime pie.
This is my husband, this is my best friend,
O Christian blogging ladies.
Compare the original Bible verses!
