verse beg. O Trou piuidic L’eun à madalez
- Middle Breton
A brief poem (3 six-line stt.) written in a late form of Middle Breton. It is found in print as part of a collection of poems, in nearly 40 languages, in memory of Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc, the astronomer, humanist and patron of science who died in 1637. The addressee being commemorated, a native speaker of French (l. 11), is praised for his proficiency in the languages of the world, including Italien, Latin ha Grec / Islanrd [sic, i.e. Islandr ‘Irish’, acc. to Le Menn], Sauxnec ha Brezonec (ll. 8-9), apparently making it appropriate that he is eulogised in every language of the world (Pa deu pep langaich so er bet / Do meleudy bede à steret, ll. 13-14).
