Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 54

For the King will enter Paris
no matter who may bemoan his success.
The Maid has promised and he will.
Paris will Burgundy bar his access?
By no means is he your enemy,
and his entry you can not delay,
so try and you will be overcome
for arrogantly blocking his way.

Original in French

Car ens entrera, qui qu'en groingne!
-- La Pucelle lui a promis.
Paris, tu cuides que Bourgoingne
Defende qu'il ne soit ens mis?
Non fera, car ses ennemis
Point ne se fait. Nul n'a puissance
Qui l'en gardast, et tu soubmis
Seras, et ton oultrecuidance!1
