King Henry VI, Part 1: Act 5 Scene 2

Scene II France. Plains in Anjou.

[Enter CHARLES, BURGUNDY, ALENCON, BASTARD OF
ORLEANS, REIGNIER, JOAN LA PUCELLE, and forces]

CHARLES
These news, my lord, may cheer our drooping spirits:
'Tis said the stout Parisians do revolt
And turn again unto the warlike French.

ALENCON
Then march to Paris, royal Charles of France,
And keep not back your powers in dalliance.

JOAN LA PUCELLE
Peace be amongst them, if they turn to us;
Else, ruin combat with their palaces!

[Enter Scout]

SCOUT
Success unto our valiant general,
And happiness to his accomplices!

CHARLES
What tidings send our scouts? I prithee, speak.

SCOUT
The English army, that divided was
Into two parties, is now conjoined in one,
And means to give you battle presently.

CHARLES
Somewhat too sudden, sirs, the warning is;
But we will presently provide for them.

BURGUNDY
I trust the ghost of Talbot is not there:
Now he is gone, my lord, you need not fear.

JOAN LA PUCELLE
Of all base passions, fear is most accursed.
Command the conquest, Charles, it shall be thine,
Let Henry fret and all the world repine.

CHARLES
Then on, my lords; and France be fortunate!

[Exeunt]
