TEXT AND TRANSLATION
Senet nen senuas Woman with no match,
Nefer her-neb Most exquisite of all,
Petrias mi sepdet khai She is like the rise of the Star Goddess
Ma hat renpet nefert At the dawning of a joyous year.
Shespet aqret webkhet anu Fair is her glowing skin,
Anet artyy gemeh Alluring is her gaze,
Benri septas medut Sweet are her lips as she speaks,
Ben nas khenu ma hau And discreet are her words.
Qat neheb webkhet qebyy Her neck is long, her breast white,
Khesbed ma-a shenuas Her hair true lapis,
Gabas her at nub Her arms more brilliant than gold;
Debauas mi seshenu Her fingers are like lotus-flowers,
Bedesh pehetas meruati Her curves full, her waist slender;
Da mentyyas neferuas Her legs display her beauty,
Tu aut khendas her ta And graceful is her gait.
Atas abai ma heptas Her embrace captures my heart;
Dias set wen neheb tai neb The necks of all men
Mes-hen na ma-a set Turn at sight of her.
Reshut heptyy set nebet The one who holds her is content,
Su mi tepyy na meryu He is first among lovers,
Petrati peraset ra ha And when she steps outside, she seems
Mi tefyet wat As the One Goddess.
