Cherry-ripe
By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
 
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;        5
There’s the land, or cherry-isle,
Whose plantations fully show
All the year where cherries grow.
