After much searching we finally found a nice church reading. My fiancé especially likes it as it mentions foxes. On Saturday he’s stepped in fox poo and so left his shoes in the shed overnight so he could sort them in the morning. When he went to look for them the next morning they were gone! We later discovered them in the garden (one on the lawn and one in a den behind a bush) – the fox had carried them there and chewed bits off them! Naughty London fox!
Song of Solomon, Chapter 2, verses 10-15
My lover spoke and said to me,
“Arise, my darling,
my beautiful one, and 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,
The cooing of doves
Is heard in our land.
The fig-tree forms its early fruit;
The blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
My beautiful one, come with me.”
My dove in the clefts of the rock,
In the hiding-places on the mountainside,
Show me your face,
Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet,
And your face is lovely.
Catch for us the foxes,
The little foxes
That ruin the vineyards,
Our vineyards that are in bloom!
