The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.
She will be named woman
because she was taken from man.”
–Genesis 2:23

My bride, my very own, I come to my garden and enjoy its spices.
I eat my honeycomb and honey;
I drink my wine and milk.
Eat and drink
until you are drunk with love.
–Songs of Songs 5:1
