Do You want the translation of the poem also ?
(You may want to search for "In Tirol stand meine Wiege", several songs and poems from Austria include similar words...)

Hello,
A little explanation: "Sulzmühler-Sohn" means son of the owner of the farmhouse called "Sulzmühle" in Kirchdorf/Tirol. It's an Airbnb place now.
