Latin.png Latin text

Quæ habitas in hortis; amici ausculant;
fac me audire vocem tuam.
Fuge dilecte mi et assimilare capreæ
hinnuloque cervorum super montes aromatum.

English.png English translation

Thou that dwellest in the gardens, the companions hearken unto thy voice:
cause me to hear it.
O my well-beloved, flee away and be like to the roe,
or to the young hart upon the mountains of spices.
