My brother and my husband.

When my eyes beheld my beloved
sitting so close to the brother of my blood,

…each unaware
of the other,
the milk in my breasts uncurdled.
The joy of the waters of my heart
flew unrestrained through the windows of my vessel.

Oh! that each knew of the other.
Oh! that I could tell how glad my soul became.
Oh! for the leaping of my soul…
