Joan Departs from Blois

...Once made chaste by your shining example,
the army marched toward Orleans as planned.
What a procession is must have been, with
singing priests leading the way for four thousand.
Gleaming in your armor while holding your
banner, you cheerfully exhorted your command...”
from Maid of Heaven by Ben D. Kennedy
