Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 29

She was miraculously sent
by Divine command
and conducted to the king
by an angel holding her hand.
Her purpose being to help him.
Her achievement was no illusion
as she was tested (a thing is
proved by its effect, my conclusion)

Original in French

Par miracle fut envoiée
Et divine amonition,
De l'ange de Dieu convoiée
Au roy, pour sa provision.
Son fait n'est pas illusion,
Car bien a esté esprouvée
Par conseil (en conclusion,
A l'effect la chose est prouvée),1
