“Wear your fathers clothes, take them, go.

Go to war, fight for your country, free your country.”

That's what he told me,

St. Michael did.


Honoured by Charles VII

I freed my country,

from the English I did.


And yet, burned at the stake I was.

Why? For wearing Fathers clothes.

That's what they tell me anyway. 

Joan of Arc
