Poem: Ode to Joan

La Pucelle de Lorraine born fourteen twelve
In town Domrémy during the Hundred Years War
At age thirteen the three saints appeared to her 

From her vision she converted the doubters
Clothed in armor donated by believers
Riding to battle facing the enemy

Success as a warrior until her fall
Taken as a captive and brought to trial
Accused of heresy for her victories

National hero
