    Grapes.

    How fair and how pleasant you are,
    O love, with your delights!

    This stature of yours is like a palm tree,
    And your breasts like its clusters.

    I said, “I will go up to the palm tree,
    I will take hold of its branches.”
    Let now your breasts be like clusters of the vine,
    The fragrance of your breath like apples,

    And the roof of your mouth like the best wine.

    The Shulamite

    The wine goes down smoothly for my beloved,
    Moving gently the lips of sleepers.

    I am my beloved’s,
    And his desire is toward me.
    Song of Solomon 7: 6 – 10 NKJV

    Palm Trees.

    If a man is an apple tree with dangling fruit, his wife is a palm tree that is wonderful to "climb." Climb aboard and enjoy the ride!

    Of course, those Christians who only do sex quickly, in the dark, under the covers, are shocked at such a thought, but it is clear that he is richly enjoying the sweet fruit of the “palm tree,” fully enjoying holding, caressing, kissing, viewing, and cupping her breasts in his hands, and savoring the rest of her in ecstatic delight.

    Oh what glorious language to those who are willing to hear and understand! This husband has the pleasures of

    • "climbing" this palm tree,
    • "opening" the garden,
    • "eating" the pleasant fruits, and
    • "drinking" his wine and milk
    Mandrakes.

    Come, my beloved,
    Let us go forth to the field;
    Let us lodge in the villages.

    Let us get up early to the vineyards;
    Let us see if the vine has budded,
    Whether the grape blossoms are open,
    And the pomegranates are in bloom.
    There I will give you my love.

    The mandrakes give off a fragrance,
    And at our gates are pleasant fruits,
    All manner, new and old,
    Which I have laid up for you, my beloved.
    Song of Solomon 7: 11 – 13 NKJV

    I am a wall,
    And my breasts like towers;
    Then I became in his eyes
    As one who found peace.
    Song of Solomon 8:10

    Men like breasts. This is a good thing, and a chance for a woman to give him great delight.

    A bundle of myrrh is my beloved to me,
    That lies all night between my breasts.
    Song of Solomon 1:13 NKJV

    Woman would wear little bags of myrrh between their breasts, and this is where the man would spend some of his time.
