Cantiga 44 of the Cantigas de Santa Maria of Alfonso X
The Knight whose Goshawk was Returned by Santa Maria de Salas
A nobleman from Aragón lost his goshawk while hunting.
The bird was large, handsome and skilled at catching birds, both large and small.
The nobleman was distressed and sent a proclamation throughout the land.
Then he took a wax model of the bird to Salas. He asked the Virgin to return his bird and vowed to serve her and to tell of her pre-eminence among the saints.
He attended mass, but before he departed, the Virgin made the goshawk alight on his hand.
With tears in his eyes, he praised the Virgin.
