Isabel / Joan

By Elvira

She broke no fools
To Heaven when looked for Light
Sword put forward by Saints
Carrying a cross – but more
If she heard voices,
not insane she was.
One burnt to ashes, the other
to age.

Warrior Queen, true
Seeing the True dauphin
Jesu, Maria by
different names:
the pierced heart
the same
