So, the storm subsides to calm:

They see the green trees wave85

On the heights o'erlooking Grève.

Hearts that bled are stanched with balm.

"Just our rapture to enhance;

Let the English rake the bay,

Gnash their teeth, and glare askance90

As they cannonade away!

'Neath rampired Solidor pleasant riding on the Rance!"

How hope succeeds

despair on each Captain's countenance!

Out burst all with one accord,

"This is Paradise for Hell!95

Let France, let France's King

Thank the man that did the thing!"

What a shout, and all one word, "Hervé Riel!"

As he stepped in front once more,

Not a symptom of surprise100

In the frank blue Breton eyes,

Just the same man as before.
