A Sonnet
"Joan of Arc" by Dolly'sPoems
The visions came, her destiny confirmed,
for crown and country, fought for victory.
She joined the army, welcomed and affirmed,
and boosted men's morale-- changed history.

Success was quick, she fought against invasion;
this Maid, a heroine was praised, revered;
and magical, her powers of persuasion,
a leader with a passion volunteered.

And captured by the British, soon to die,
they tortured her and burned her at the stake;
but she was innocent, she did deny--
immortalised forever as a saint.

A precious flower, early in her bloom,
and thugs in power took her light too soon.


Author Notes
Joan of Arc (1412 -1431) was nicknamed (The Maid Orleans) or (The Maid of Lorraine).

She was a French heroine during The Hundred Years War and canonised as. Saint, She was born to peasant family in northeastern France. Joan said that she received visions from Saints instructing her to support Charles VII against British domination. Joan was sent as part of the relief army at the Siege of Orleans where there was a success for the French. This boosted French morale and paved they way to a victory at at Castillon in 1453.

On 23 May 1430, she was captured and turned over to the British who condemned her to death after a short trial. She was burned at the stake she the tender age of 19.

In 1456, an inquisition authorised by Pope Callixtus III examined the details of the trial and it was decided she was innocent and she became a martyr and canonised as s Saint. Jeanne d Arc is Joan of Arcs real name and this is why she is called Joan of Arc.
