Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 33

Oh! How clear this was
at the siege of Orleans
where her power was first shown
No miracle was more clear than that
God so aided and to all it was known.
Thru the inability of our enemies who
helped each other like dogs without breath,
So they were captured or put to death.

Original in French

0! comment lors bien y paru
Quant le siege ert devant Orliens,
Où premier sa force apparu!
Onc miracle, si com je tiens,
Ne fut plus cler, car Dieu aux siens
Aida telement, qu'ennemis
Ne s'aiderent ne que mors chiens.
Là furent prins et à mort mis.1
