The Vision of La PucelleThree em-bloodied gold-gilt lions descendOn the silver lilies of far fair FranceGrim and red-stained kingswhile her sons defendThe broken land with shriven spear and lance.The smoking reek of famine, war, and death,Plague, and wailing cries, and desolation:Sick landpoor and weary France!gasps for breathWith the diseased and choking nation's desperation.Drenched afresh in humiliations new:Of Agincourt, and bloody Henry's fameWhere the proud many fell to England's fewAnd knighthood's flow'r perish in bitter shame.The peasant maid sits in a sainted trance;Arise O Joan! And save belovéd France!
