Canticum Canticorum

7:1  ... Quam pulchri sunt gressus tui in calciamentis, filia principis! Iuncturæ femorum tuorum sicut monilia quæ fabricata sunt manu artificis;

7:2  umbilicus tuus crater tornatilis, numquam indigens poculis. Venter tuus sicut acervus tritici, vallatus liliis.

How graceful are your feet in sandals, O prince's daughter!
The joints of your thighs are like jewels, the work of a master hand.
Your navel is a rounded bowl that never lacks mixed wine.
Your belly is a heap of wheat, encircled with lilies.
