Jeanne d’Arc

A heroine of francedownload (2)

who joined the saints

a maid in armour

who departed with no complaints

 Daughter of Jacques d’Arc, a peasant

and the tender Isabelle,

blessed with divine assistance

and visions of Archangel.

She led a prince into battle

helping him reclaim his throne

lifting the siege of Orleans

she did it all alone.

She lived, she fought, she won

meeting her end at a stake

though they took her life

her glory they couldn’t take.
