The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XI.

The Queen

Die Königinn.

Mulieres opulentæ surgite, & audite vocem meam. Post dies, & annum, & vos conturbemini. — Isaiæ xxxii.

THE QUEEN.
Death, in the guise of a court-jester, drags away the Queen as she is leaving her palace.

Leuez uous dames opulentes.

Ouyez la uoix des trespassez.

Apres maintz ans & iours passez,

Serez troublées & doulentes.
