Focal Laidine é pietas a chiallaíonn deabhóid, caondúthracht, nó suáilce agus is é mo bharúil go sonraíonn muid an deabhóid don teanga féin sa chnuasach seo, Pietas, an ceathrú chnuasach ó lámh an fhile oilte Bríd Ní Mhóráin. Tá mar a bheadh ‘eithne shíoraí’ ag séideadh tríd an fhilíocht seo agus go deimhin cuirtear in iúl dúinn gur ceird thar a bheith spioradálta í ceird na filíochta. ‘Leochaileacht na beatha fisiciúla agus tábhacht na ndlúthchaidreamh daonna an dá mhórthéama ag Bríd sa chnuasach seo’, a mhíníonn Dr Máirín Nic Eoin dúinn sa réamhrá. Tugann an file aghaidh an-chróga ar an fhulaingt, ar na brónta agus ar an bhás ach braithim gile an tslánaithe ann in ainneoin na scáileanna. Is léir tionchar an fhile agus an mhisteach Ioslamach Rumi (1207-73) uirthi, a deir go bhfuil rún na beatha le fáil na chiúnas.
