    • c. 1840, Ramón Varela Vahamonde, Conversa entre os arrieiros:
      Por eso non queren suba
      Na sisa nin na taberna
      E, en tanto que os demais paguen,
      Eles recachan a perna.
      E como serán sumidos
      En bebedelas, o aumento,
      Dan a sisa pol-os tragos
      E miran outros pr’o vento.
      That's why they don't want an increase
      in the surcharge nor in the tavern
      and, as long as the others pay,
      they uncover the leg [they sunbathe].
      And since they are gonna be consumed
      in binges, the augment,
      they give the surcharge for the gulps
      and others look into the wind.
