As froliñas dos toxos
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): SPA
¡Nin rosiñas brancas, nin claveles roxos!
Eu venero as froliñas dos toxos.

Dos toxales as tenues froliñas,
que sorríen, a medo, entre espiñas.

Entre espiñas que o ceio agasalla
con diamantes as noites que orballa.

¡Oh do ermo preciado tesouro:
as froliñas dos toxos son de ouro!

De ouro vello son, mai, as froliñas
dos bravos toxales, ¡das devociós miñas!...

Confirmed with Antonio Noriega Varela, Do Ermo, Ourense, Editorial Galaxia, Vigo, 1982.

Las florecillas de los tojos
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the French (Français) 
Ni rositas blancas, ni claveles rojos
Yo venero a las florecillas de los tojos.

De los tojales, las tenues florecillas
Que sonríen de miedo entre espinas,

Entre espinas que el cielo agasaja
Con diamantes las noches que orbaya.

Oh, del yermo el preciado tesoro
Las florecillas de los tojos son de oro.

De oro antiguo son las florecillas,
De los buenos tojales. De mis devociones.
