Marianne

A city of light
plunged into darkness
grief runs red in streets
marred by footsteps of madmen

Prayers take flight
form wings to carry word
of a united nation

Rise, rise

from ashes
like a phoenix
burning brighter than
hatred

When Chanteclair crows
he shows heart that
will never be stilled
will never lose strength
qui n’avance pas recule

A city of light
illuminated by hope
liberty lives on in streets
shining with human decency
