The Beloved commands the north wind and the south wind to blow on her garden (16). She is a garden; full of exotic plants, urbs, spices, and fruit. Her body and soul are the essence of her garden.
Sweet and pleasing smells are the natural product of her garden. She desires that her aroma may emanate from her to her lover. She wants the fragrance of her charms to be wafted about to draw her Lover to her.
The maiden wants the king to taste her choice fruit. She is his and his alone. She yields herself to him. She fully submits to her lover.
When a woman wants her man she must let him know. Her submission is his excitement. When a man wants her woman he must go to her. His dominance is her excitement.
