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.
