Also known as the Song of Solomon, a section of the Bible that is decidedly one of the most erotic, sensuous works of poetry that anybody can find.
It's one of the "scrolls" (megillot) of the Writings (Ketuvim), the last section of the Hebrew Bible. It is also the fifth book of Wisdom in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.
The whole structure and plot is that of a pair of lovers from courtship to marriage to consummation is a celebration of erotic love. While it can be argued that it's a metaphor for the union between Yahweh and the land of Israel (or that between Christ and the Church), it's just as likely very seductive romantic poetry.
The "Song of Songs" features such gems as these:
Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest
is my beloved among the young men.
I delight to sit in his shade,
and his fruit is sweet to my taste.
Let him lead me to the banquet hall,
and let his banner over me be love.
Strengthen me with raisins,
refresh me with apples,
for I am faint with love..."
...How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride!
How much more pleasing is your love than wine,
and the fragrance of your perfume
more than any spice!
Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my bride;
A way to express yourself in a way that people will remember.
a way to turn the rantings of a crazy dude into a melody that people will actually listen to and think about.
example 1 guy1: man, that guy's life must really suck right now.
guy1: just listen to his song.
guy1: what the hell is wrong with that dude?
guy2: I think he's trying to write a song.
guy1: well could you go over there and give him some music to put his lyrics with? he's scaring the kids!
