Writer's Wednesday - Hadewijch

No matter how sad the season and silent the birds,
brave hearts enduring pain willingly --
for Love -- have no need of sadness.
They know and understand all things instead --
sweetness and cruelty, joy and sorrow --
they know everything must be lived through for Love's sake.


--- Hadewijch, a Christian mystic. (1150-1200 ad.)
