~ Sorglos wie's Gewölk am Himmel ~
Ah for the life of the happy wanderer is the theme presented on this etched stein marked with the Mettlach logo and mold number 2888 and dated 1902.
Sorglos wie's Gewölk am Himmel
ziehen die Wanderburschen fort,
Trank und Speise erfochten
bei dem Zug durch jeden Ort.
Carefree as the clouds in heaven
the wanderers trudge forth,
begging drink and food
on their journey thru each locale.
