Sur l’erin de Dodona.

Contre ceux qui font vertu de
parler beaucop.

Ne veux tu point faire un peu de silence,
Toy qui me roms mon sommeil & repos
Cil n’aye point de parler audience
Qui ne dit rien servant & à propos.


1.  At the temple of Dodona in north-west Greece, there was a major shrine to Zeus, which featured a bronze bell which rang constantly, day and night, whence arose the proverbial expression ‘more talkative than the bronze of Dodona’: Jakob Masen, Palaestra eloquentiae ligatae. Ed nova.. correctior. (Köln, 1682-3), p. 101.
