|~ Im winter trink' und singe Lieder ~|
|This little verse rhymes in both German and English to present reasons for drinking in winter and spring, but doesn't say anything about the rest of the year. This is a large relief pottery pouring stein impressed "150 5", ca. early 1900's.|
Im winter trink' und singe Lieder
aus Freude daß der Frühling nah ist
und kommt der Frühling trinke wieder
aus Freude daß er endlich da ist.
In winter I drink and sing songs
out of joy that spring is near
and when spring comes I drink again
out of joy that it is finally here.
