After Sharp Showers

“After sharp showers,” said Peace, “the sun shines brightest;
No weather is warmer than after watery clouds;
Nor any love lovelier, or more loving friends,
Than after war and woe when Love and Peace are masters.
There was never war in this world or wickedness so sharp
That Love, if he like, might make a laughing matter.
And Peace through patience puts an end to all perils.”

fromĀ Piers Plowman, ca. 1372-1389
