L'homme armé, L'homme armé doibt on douter.
On a fait partout crier,
Que chascun se veigne armer d'un haubregon de fer...

Sans vouloir vous gêner, mais il faudrait réviser votre Français mon ami. Cela dit, quelle belle scène d'adieu.

Thank you for the help -- I'm never embarrassed by education, but in my defense, it's 600-year-old French. :P I've been listening to a modern arrangement of L'homme Arme while drawing this, so...I blame the age of the song?

(And thank you.)

Je suis simplément heureuse d'être capable de comprendre votre discussion. C'est si long que j'ai eu l' opportunité de m'expresser en français... et en plus au dessous d'une page si jolie :)

You know what is more bizarre? Due to my mother language has Latin origins, I can read and understand even not knowing French XD And it's easier when it is Italian or Spanish. I wonder if it happens with other languages for the people of other cultures (I don't know how near Russian and Ukrainian languages are.).

I can semi-understand Italian because my second language is close to it. :D

Ukrainian and Russian are closely related. I don't know if they're flat-out mutually intelligable or not -- anyone wanna weigh in?

Now *that's* a fitting song I can actually pronounce the words to!
