Lettering

Le clocher de la vierge. ... Eglise d'Albert (Somme)

Lettering note

Lettering continues: "Par un cruel bombardement, le joli clocher de Marie, fut attaqué indignement, et la douce Vierge assaille. Aucune ballle meurtrière, n'atteignit à son coeur de Mére, mais, comme un beau lys, inclinée, vers son peuple, elle s'est penchée. Son fils qu'elle tient en ses bras, semble dire: ne craignez pas, nous venons à votre secours, nous veillerons sur vous toujours. Francais, soyons pleins d'espérance, dieu enverrait plutôt des cieux, pour venger la reine de France, des légions d'esprits glorieux. M.R."
