Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 4

Now my song has turned again,
from one of sorrow to one of cheer.
From the time I was imprisoned and longed
to see the glorious spring season of the year.
Thanks be to God it has come again and
every creature and thing will renew
and will bring a shift from the brown
of winter to a new bright green hue.

Original in French

Si est bien le vers retourné
De grant dueil en joie nouvelle
Depuis le temps qu'ay sejourné
Là où je suis, et la tresbelle
Saison, que printemps on appelle,
La Dieu mercy, qu'ay desirée,
Où toute rien se renouvelle,
S'est du sec au vert temps tirée.1
