Comments:
My knowledge of the German Language is non-existent. I understand however that a rough translation of this song is:
A man needs a little place, as small as it may be, of which he can say: look here, this is mine.
Folksong

The design of this bookmark is the same as cash-bm0470: One swallow does not make a summer. The German translation though is not the same verse.
