There is a garden in her face
Where roses and white lilies blow;
A heavenly paradise is that place,
Wherein all pleasant fruits do flow:
There cherries grow which none may buy
Till “Cherry-ripe” themselves do cry.

Jovana Kovac (Apr 08 2019 8:53AM) : Woman's beauty [Edited] more

This sentence surprises me because poet is referring a woman’s face as a garden. He thinks she’s pretty and her face is the “garden full of flowers”. My first impression of this poem is who’s the woman the poet’s talking about.

Jovana Kovac (Apr 08 2019 8:56AM) : "None may buy" more

I think this sentence is really cool because woman is waiting for someone special and “cherries” are actually her lips which no one can have, and the poet probably want them.

Jovana Kovac (May 15 2019 9:41AM) : Is the "cherry" metaphor for breaking the hymen? [Edited]

Those cherries fairly do enclose
Of orient pearl a double row,
Which when her lovely laughter shows,
They look like rose-buds filled with snow;
Yet them no peer nor prince can buy
Till “Cherry-ripe” themselves do cry.

Does that mean the poet os one of these men who can’t get to this woman? Do they even know each other, does she know who he is? Or maybe they are in love and he’s protecting her from other men?
