Assumption/Nativity of the BVM
Full text: 

Tota pulchra es, amica mea, et macula non est in te; favus distillans labia tua, mel et lac sub lingua tua, odor unguentorum tuorum super omnia aromata. Flores apparuerunt in terra nostra, vineae florentes odorem dederunt et vox turturis audita est in terra nostra.

English translation: 

Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee; thy lips drop as the honeycomb, honey and milk are under thy tongue; much better is the smell of thine ointments than all spice. The flowers appeared in our land, the vines with the tender grape smelled sweet and the voice of the dove was heard in our land.
