aus Jost Ammans Ständebuch, V

I’ll make you clocks that ring and chime,
And accurately tell the time,
From brass and glass and tiny gears.
They won’t lose time for several years.
I’ll also make the outer case
And paint the numbers on the face.
I’ll pour my care and effort in it,
So that you’ll know the hour and minute.
