Although my husband is free from defects,
the way in which he embraces me is such as to make me feign dislike.
His love will increase though it may (at first seem to)
fade through the short-lived distress caused by (my) dislike.
Is there a celestial land that can please
like the feigned dislike of those whose union resembles that of earth and water?
In prolonged dislike after an embrace
there is a weapon that can break my heart.
Though free from defects, men feel pleased
when they cannot embrace the delicate shoulders of those whom they love.
To digest what has been eaten is more delightful
than to eat more; likewise love is more delightful in dislike than intercourse.
Those are conquerors whose dislike has been defeated
and that is proved by the love (which follows).
Will I enjoy once more through her dislike,
the pleasure of that love that makes her forehead perspire?
May the bright-jewelled one feign dislike,
and may the night be prolonged for me to implore her!
Dislike adds delight to love; and a hearty embrace (thereafter)
will add delight to dislike.
