“Wie schmeckt ein frischer Trunk so gut, mit einer Pfeif vereint!

(How great a fresh drink tastes, combined with a pipe!
This gives one strength and cools, as well as courage when the sun shines hot!)

A Landsknecht was a feudal serf used for military purposes by his master. These “soldiers” were often traded between landowners and were, in a sense, the equivalent of modern mercenaries, with the important difference that they were not free to choose their employer.
