In this poem, printed in 1569 in Basel (VD16 ZV 28372), the lyrical speaker explains why he does not want to have his own house and run his own household. He then enumerates what is necessary to keep a household. In addition to furnishings, tableware, tools, or food stock, the list also includes agricultural equipment and livestock. The poem draws to a close with advice to all those who intend to marry: they should consider what is needed to run the household. The poem ends by being presented as a gift for the new year. The poem is based in part on Johann Ohnesorg's poem, also in this collection.
