I sat down under his shadow
Language: English 
I sat down under his shadow 
I sat down under his shadow with great delight,
and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
He brought me to the banqueting house,
and his banner over me was love.
Stay me with flagons, 
comfort me with apples:
for I am sick of love.
