The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXXII.

The Count

Der Graf.

Quoniam cùm interiet non sumet secum omnia, neqe cum eo descẽdet gloria eius. — Psal. xlviii.

THE COUNT.
Death, as a peasant with a flail, lifts away his back-piece.

Auec soy rien n’emportera,

Mais qu’une foys la Mort le tombe,

Rien de sa gloire n’ostera,

Pour mettre auec soy en sa tombe.
