    Cherry ripe, ripe, ripe, I cry,
Full and fair ones,—come and buy!
If so be you ask me where
They do grow, I answer, there,
Where my Julia’s lips do smile,—
There ’s the land, or cherry-isle.
          Cherry Ripe.
2265
    Some asked me where the rubies grew,
  And nothing I did say;
But with my finger pointed to
  The lips of Julia.
          The Rock of Rubies, and the Quarrie of Pearls.
2266
    Some asked how pearls did grow, and where?
  Then spoke I to my girl
To part her lips, and showed them there
  The quarelets of pearl.
          The Rock of Rubies, and the Quarrie of Pearls.
2267
    A sweet disorder in the dress
Kindles in clothes a wantonness.
          Delight in Disorder.
2268
    A winning wave, deserving note,
In the tempestuous petticoat;
A careless shoe-string, in whose tie
I see a wild civility,—
Do more bewitch me than when art
Is too precise in every part.
          Delight in Disorder.
 
Note 1.
See Bacon, Quotation 49. [back]
