“ In the beginning Love satisfies us,”
When Love first spoke to me of love—
How I laughed at her in return!
But then she made me like the hazel trees,
Which blossom early in the season of darkness,
And bear fruit slowly.
Hadewijch of Brabant, mid-13th cent. (browsing the archives and these six lines punched me in the gut once again)
