Jeanne’s voices

 

The peasant maid of Domrémy

a baby girl

 

She knelt weeping and prayed

garlands of wild flowers

 

The battle

 

“I am only a poor girl”

 

From the cloud came 

stories of the wars

 

“How can I be sure?”

 

She tried to escape

The March

The Trial 

The Dauphin 

The Duke

A Miracle

 

She prayed that she might die

 

“They say to me, ‘have good courage’

‘Ride boldly on’”

 

The death

 

The church nearby 

 

The peasant maid of Domrémy

a baby girl

 

From the cloud came a voice
