This is what I could make of young Deborah's (Jennifer Connelly)
"My beloved is white and [ruddy?]
His skin is as the most fine gold
His cheeks are as a bed of spices
(Even though he hasn't washed since last december.)
His eyes are as the eyes of [dance?]
His body is as [great?] ivory
His legs are as pillars in marble
(In pants so dirty they stand by themselves.)
He's altogether lovable
But'll always be a two-bit punk
So he'll never be my beloved
What a shame."

"[Solomon's] Canticle of Canticles Chapter 5 (...)
5:10. My beloved is white and ruddy, chosen out of thousands.
5:11. His head is as the finest gold: his locks as branches of palm
trees, black as a raven.
5:12. His eyes as doves upon brooks of waters, which are washed with
milk, and sit beside the plentiful streams.
5:13. His cheeks are as beds of aromatical spices set by the
His lips are as lilies dropping choice myrrh.
5:14. His hands are turned and as of gold, full of hyacinths. His
belly as of ivory, set with sapphires.
5:15. His legs as pillars of marble, that are set upon bases of gold.
His form as of Libanus, excellent as the cedars.
5:16. His throat most sweet, and he is all lovely: such is my
beloved, and he is my friend, O ye daughters of Jerusalem."
Hope this is it!
