Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

THE MAID OF ORLEANS PLAY
by Friedrich Schiller

ACT IV SCENE XIII.

        JOHANNA, DUCHATEL, DUNOIS, afterwards RAIMOND.

DUCHATEL (returning).
Johanna d'Arc! uninjured from the town
The king permits you to depart. The gates
Stand open to you. Fear no injury,--
You are protected by the royal word.
Come follow me, Dunois! You cannot here
Longer abide with honor. What an issue!

        [He retires. DUNOIS recovers from his stupor, casts
        one look upon JOHANNA, and retires. She remains standing
        for a moment quite alone. At length RAIMOND appears;
        he regards her for a time with silent sorrow, and then
        approaching takes her hand.]

RAIMOND.
Embrace this opportunity. The streets
Are empty now. Your hand! I will conduct you.

        [On perceiving him, she gives the first sign of consciousness.
        She gazes on him fixedly, and looks up to heaven; then taking
        his hand she retires.]
