“Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come” (2:12)
I’ve always heard it said that the message of the Song of Songs (Song of Solomon) is an allegory between Christ and the church. Perhaps it is.
“How much more pleasing is your love than wine” (4:10)
But this one thing is clear to me whenever I read Song of Songs: it’s a celebration of romantic love between a man and a woman.
“I belong to my beloved,
and his desire is for me” (7:10)
