- Strophes divided by a punctus, plus a space; The fragment, sporadically vocalized, includes strophes 4-28 of Solomon Suleiman's Qiqlar that begins וקדוש אילף חכמות ישישות, which is part of the arrangement that begins וארץ אצהיל בשירות מנושקות, published by Vardah Padvah, Ḳovets ʹal-Yad, v. 11b (1989), p. 1-62. This fragment includes, in the published edition, pp. 31-33 ll. 72-109; The poem is structured three rhymed verses per strophe. The strophes are catenated, as the first verse of each strophe repeats the theme of the final verse of the preceding strophe. The last verse of every strophe is the first phrase of each verse of Songs of Solomon (in this fragment II 8-III 8) consecutively; This format resembles that of the matsdar on Songs by Samuel ha-shelishi, which starts אסלסל בפצח רנני (published by Davidson, Ginze Shekhṭer, New York : JTS, 1928-1929, vol. 3, pp. 58-92).
