Slide20 l.jpg

Joan of Arc

The day was cold, Both armies bold, As hands grasped the ladders, Ramparts were scaled, Arrows were sailed, But the French climbed the Tourelles.

Although Joan was hit in the shoulder, The French continued to grow bolder, Even slowly healing in a field, She raised a fiery French revolt, Just hit by a crossbow bolt, Armor glistening white.

The English got cold feet, And began a hasty retreat, As French crawled out of Orleans, Passing the cold river on boards, Attacking English with sharp swords, They set the Tourelles on fire.

English Captain Sir Glasdale, Certainly looked very pale, When they found him drowned in the river, Sir Talbot ordered the English forts be left, To avoid anymore French fort theft, And so Orleans was freed.
