Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

THE MAID OF ORLEANS PLAY
by Friedrich Schiller

ACT I SCENE VIII.

        LA HIRE returns, CHARLES, SOREL.

SOREL.
You come alone? You do not bring him back?
        [Observing him more closely.]
La Hire! What news? What does that look announce?
Some new calamity?

LA HIRE.
                Calamity
Hath spent itself; sunshine is now returned.

SOREL.
What is it? I implore you.

LA HIRE (to the KING).
                Summon back
The delegates from Orleans.

CHARLES.
                Why? What is it?

LA HIRE.
Summon them back! Thy fortune is reversed.
A battle has been fought, and thou hast conquered.

SOREL.
Conquered! Oh, heavenly music of that word!

CHARLES.
La Hire! A fabulous report deceives thee;
Conquered! In conquest I believe no more.

LA HIRE.
Still greater wonders thou wilt soon believe.
Here cometh the archbishop. To thine arms
He leadeth back Dunois.

SOREL.
                O beauteous flower
Of victory, which doth the heavenly fruits
Of peace and reconcilement bear at once!
