What is the conceit in "There is a Garden in her Face"?

a. The women's face is compared to lilies and roses in a garden because of her white skin and red cheeks. (Line 2)
b. The women's lips are compared to cherries because she will not allow anyone to kiss them until she cries "Cherry-Ripe." (Line 6)
c. The women's eyes are compared to an angel's because they are heavenly, sweet, and innocent. (Line 13)

    When a woman looks into a mirror, she only sees the flaws, and that is what she looks at. When one sees perfection, it is a red flag that conceit has set in. Remember in Snow White, who asked "who is the most beautiful of all?". But remember, the most beautiful of them all (Snow White) never mentioned it.

    so in the above, each line refers to perfection, without blemishes. The conceit is looking only at the perfection, and comparing it to nature's perfection.
