LIke as the apple tree among the trees of the forest: so is my welbeloued among the sonnes of men, [I can not but testifie my loue and great desire towards him,] for my delight is to sit and rest vnder his shadowe, bicause his fruite [and word] is sweet vnto my mouth: [and when my strength faileth me] he bringeth me into his own wine seller: and spreadeth the banner of his loue ouer mee, [and there I desired to be comforted, saieng:] Set about mee cups or flagons of wine, and comfort me with apples, for I am sicke of loue, [and lo, I haue felt it.] For his left hand is vnder my head, and his right hand doth im∣brace mee.
