French Old (842-ca.1400) to English translations [Non-PRO] Art/Literary - Music / lyrics
French Old (842-ca.1400) term or phrase:puist
A final question about Machaut's 14th century song: puist? Is it a variation of poivre or something?
Dame, a vous sans retollir
Dong cuer, pensee, desir,
Corps, et amour,
Comme a toute la millour
Qu'on puist choisir,
Ne qui vivre ne morir
Puist a ce jour.
