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.

KURTINA JEANTY (Apr 08 2019 11:36AM) : i think the key idea in this sentence is that there is such beauty in her face and there is much more that people dont know about her and thats why it is compared to a garden more

could they be relating her to a bad garden or a ugly garden

KURTINA JEANTY (Apr 08 2019 11:37AM) : this line is repeated in every stanza !! more

why is that ??

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.

Her eyes like angels watch them still;
Her brows like bended bows do stand,
Threat'ning with piercing frowns to kill
All that attempt with eye or hand
Those sacred cherries to come nigh,
Till “Cherry-ripe” themselves do cry.
