1 How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman.
2 Thy navel is like a round goblet, which wanteth not liquor: thy belly is like an heap of wheat set about with lilies.
3 Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins.
4 Thy neck is as a tower of ivory; thine eyes like the fishpools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bathrabbim: thy nose is as the tower of Lebanon which looketh toward Damascus.
5 Thine head upon thee is like Carmel, and the hair of thine head like purple; the king is held in the galleries.
6 How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!
7 This thy stature is like to a palm tree, and thy breasts to clusters of grapes.
8 I said, I will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of the boughs thereof: now also thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy nose like apples;
9 And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my beloved, that goeth down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.
10 I am my beloved's, and his desire is toward me.
11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.
12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves.
13 The mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.

Solomon tried to woo the Shulammite girl but she stood firm and remained loyal to her shepherd boy.

I believe the fruit referred to in Song of Solomon 7:13 may be the same as the treasures referred to in Matthew 13:52. Jesus said that scribe who becomes a disciple of the Kingdom is like one who brings out of his storehouses treasures he has laid up, both new and old. The maiden, likened unto the Bride of Christ tells her beloved she has laid up for him fruits new and old. Therefore, we, as the Bride of Christ and the disciples of the Kingdom must lay up fruit, both new and old, for our Beloved. What is this fruit that we must lay up, then ? Quite a few references to spiritual fruit can be found (Galatians 5:22-23; John 15:1-17; Matthew 7:15-20...). However, I think the mystery lies in the new and the old. Jesus wants us to seek it out, to decipher the parable for ourselves. What is the new fruit and what is the old fruit ? When we have dug deep we will discover the answer and can lay up all manner of those pleasant fruits for our Master.
