aus Jost Ammans Ständebuch, II

I practice Carpentry, the trade
You need if you need buildings made.
I'll build a house; I'll build a mill;
I'll build a castle on a hill,
Or barracks for the military.
I'll build a bridge; I'll build a ferry.
I'll build good ships and solid rafts;
Daedalus taught me all his crafts.
