Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1895], at


A man's love charm

1Even as this ox, O Asvins, steps and turns together with his
  So let thy fancy turn itself, come nearer, and unite with me.
2I, as the shaft-horse draws the mare beside him, draw thee to
  Like grass that storm and wind have rent, so be thy mind at-
   tached to me!
3Swiftly from Bhaga's hands I bear away a love-compelling charm
  Of ointment and of sugar-cane, of Spikenard and the Kushtha
