Maidens of Yore

Carpe Diem #165 (The Maiden)


leading the way to battle
demur look deceiving
sainted for her sacrifice

***

on mighty steed
determination steeled
burned for steadfast beliefs

***

praying to the blessed virgin
tiny chapel dimly lit
tears quietly flow

    1. St. Joan chose that for herself. Honestly I was upset when allowed in US but only those who want to be in combat will be. Israel has men and women serve much like the US draft which disappeared.
