Poem of the day
The Rock Of Rubies, And The Quarry Of Pearls
by Robert Herrick
Some ask'd me where the rubies grew,
And nothing I did say :
But with my finger pointed to
The lips of Julia.
Some ask'd how pearls did grow, and where ;
Then spoke I to my girl,
To part her lips, and show'd them there
The quarelets of Pearl.
