O north wind!
O south wind!
Blow upon my garden!
Let its fragrance be wafted abroad.
Let my beloved come to his garden.
Let him eat its choicest fruits.”
The female lover wants the winds, both north and south, to blow on her garden so that the fragrance would go out. Thus her male lover would smell this and come to the garden to eat her choicest fruits. There may be sexual overtures in this metaphor. However, this is one of the biblical passages that puts an emphasis on the sense of smell.
