Joan of Arc

Saint Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orléans fame
Was born a simple shepherdess in France
And though King Henry with his legions came
To Harfleur, Henry didn’t stand a chance

Although they started well at Agincourt
At Orléans they were greeted by the force
Of Joan of Arc, the heroine of war
At les Tourelles she routed them, of course

Her beauty and her strength were gifts from God
To guide her countrymen to victory
And though she fell to Henry’s vicious squad
She overcame cruel English tyranny

Saint Joan is still alive in France today
In everyone who lives above the fray.
