Beauty Theme

Song of Solomon (Song of Songs) Theme of Beauty Quotes

The main squeezes in Song of Songs aren't just lovebirds, they're super-hot lovebirds. Oh, and to top it off, they're frolicking amidst an outbreak of some major natural beauty. It's springtime in Israel, and we're pretty sure that's no coincidence. With all those natural metaphors, the lovers and their natural surroundings are basically combined into one thing of beauty. Oh, poetry.
