The Shulamite

The Shulamite
      Rightly do they love you.


      5 I am dark, but lovely,
      O daughters of Jerusalem,
      Like the tents of Kedar,
      Like the curtains of Solomon.
       6 Do not look upon me, because I am dark,
      Because the sun has tanned me.
      My mother’s sons were angry with me;
      They made me the keeper of the vineyards,
      But my own vineyard I have not kept.

Song of Solomon 1:5-6
