I see no trace
Of mysterious beings.


Over the clouds
That must hide them from me,
To that Heavenly shore,
I cannot reach!

[Scene 2] 

Once Joan has finished singing, Catherine softly approaches her. Joan seems astonished to see her.


Catherine, my little sister, what are you doing here? Why aren't you watching your flock?


My flock's already back in the fold. Have you forgotten that today's a feastday, Joan?... Our friends are waiting for us to dance around the big tree with them.


My garland of flowers is finished, and I haven't forgotten the feastday. But it's still too early to bring in my little lambs. I'll meet you in an hour under the big tree.
