This poem describes, in vivid and erotic metaphors, the pursuit and enjoyment of love between a man and a woman. At certain times in the Church's history the material was actually considered inappropriate for pious souls, and therefore was read as one grand metaphor of the love God has for His people. While this is certainly an application we can make from the book, there is no denying that the physical relationship between a man and a woman is at the heart of this magnificent piece of poetry, and that sexuality is an essential component of God's intentions for humanity. In this book we receive a picture of the context in which sexual love is to be enjoyed to the glory of God, its creator.
