W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  Responsibilities and Other Poems.  1916.

39. Peace


AH, that Time could touch a form 
That could show what Homer’s age 
Bred to be a hero’s wage. 
‘Were not all her life but storm, 
Would not painters paint a form         5
Of such noble lines’ I said, 
‘Such a delicate high head, 
All that sternness amid charm, 
All that sweetness amid strength?’ 
Ah, but peace that comes at length,  10
Came when Time had touched her form.
