“Essora el Campeador prísos' a la barba:
—¡Grado a Dios, que cielo e tierra manda!
Por esso es luenga, que a delicio fue criada.
¿Qué avedes vós, conde, por retraer la mi barba?
Ca de cuando nasco a delicio fue criada,
ca non me priso a ella fijo de mugier nada
nimbla messó fijo de moro nin de cristiana,
commo yo a vós, conde, en el castiello de Cabra,
cuando pris a Cabra e a vós por la barba.
Non ý ovo rapaz que non messó su pulgada,
la que yo messé aún non es eguada.—”
Anonymous, Cantar de Mio Cid
