In 1636, a young girl named Anna Neander was married to Johannes Partatius, a minister. A baroque poet, Johann Simon Dach (1605-1659), was invited to the wedding. He fell in love with the bride and wrote a poem about her 1637. The text on this stein is taken from a later version of that poem, penned in 1778 by Johann Gottfried Herder and set to music in 1825 by Friedrich Silcher.
