Oops, just sent you another one.... gah. Actually, I was aware while writing this one that people mightn't be able to see the Cyrillic; but it was an added bonus since I gave a transliteration too. -- Of smale houndes hadde she that she fedde Stiofán Ó Maoilbreanainn With rosted flessh, or milk and wastel-breed. But soore wepte she if oon of hem were deed, Or if men smoot it with a yerde smerte. -- Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales, General Prologue 146-149.
