Maya

A sister for Aaron. A daughter for Sarah.

It is surely something totally wonderful when your daughter has her own daughter.  Especially for her mother.

There Is A Garden In Her Face

BY THOMAS CAMPION

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

Those cherries fairly do enclose 
Of orient pearl a double row, 
Which when her lovely laughter shows, 
They look like rose-buds fill’d with snow; 
Yet them nor 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. 

From: THE THIRD AND FOVRTHE BOOKE OF AYRES (1617)
