Arise, My Darling, My Beautiful One

Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, 
come with me.
See! The winter is past; 
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth.
The season of singing has come
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.
The fig tree ripens its figs,
and the vines are in blossom;
they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away...
