La Belle France

As in the past, the bards of old,
Chanted their lays of warriors bold,
Of knightly creeds and ladies' eyes,
Of prancing steeds and lovers' sighs,
And noble deeds of high emprise,
So shall I sing if I have wit,
Enough, to safely manage it,
Of this wild war, that foulest race,

Overview

Excerpt from La Belle France

La Belle France

As in the past, the bards of old,
Chanted their lays of warriors bold,
Of knightly creeds and ladies' eyes,
Of prancing steeds and lovers' sighs,
And noble deeds of high emprise,
So shall I sing if I have wit,
Enough, to safely manage it,
Of this wild war, that foulest race,
The Teuton, rushing from his place,
Forced on the world to his disgrace,
And his undoing, let us say,
To bring to earth a brighter, fairer day.

War is the father of all things,
The power of emperors and kings
Is built upon foundations laid in war,
On death, distress and havoc widely flung afar,
And plunderers grow far because of might,
While trampled underfoot the right
Seems crushed to earth, no more to rise,
And veiled are God's translucent skies,
By sable war clouds, black impenetrable disguise,
Hiding the sunlight from our straining eyes.
