The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXVIII.

The Rich Man

Der Reichmann.

Stulte hac nocte repetunt animam tuam, & quæ parasti cuius erunt? — Lvcæ xii.

THE RICH MAN.
Death finds him at his pay-table and seizes the money.

Ceste nuict la Mort te prendra,

Et demain seras enchassé.

Mais dy moy, fol, a qui uiendra

Le bien que tu as amassé?
