Grandpa Pencil's Little Rhymes

Rubies and Pearls

Rubies and Pearls
Robert Herrick

Some asked me where the rubies grew,
And nothing I did say,
But with my finger pointed to
The lips of Julia.

Some asked how pearls did grow, and where;
Then spoke I to my girl
To part her lips, and showed them there
The quarrelets of pearl.
