    • 1878, Francisco Añón, untitled:
      Por mor de certa rabuxa
      pelengrinei por Europa
      marexaba vento en popa
      pero dixen ¡ai da puxa!
      xa lle vin o rabo á cruxa,
      ando feito un sapo cuncho
      volvome ao patrio corruncho
      Because of certain rage
      I pilgrimaged along Europe
      I was sailing with tailwind
      but I said to myself, geez!
      I've already seen the owl's tail
      and I'm look like a tortoise
      I'm getting back to the fatherland's corner
    Synonym: alor
