XXXV. Consolation
‘Drive such despaire away’
By Stephen Hawes (d. 1523)
 
FYE, fye! Drive such despaire away,
And live in hopé, which shall do you good.
Joy cometh after when the payne is past,
Be ye pacient and sober in mode:
To wepe and waile, all is for you in waste.        5
Was never payne, but it had joy at last.
