The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXXIII.

The Old Man

Der Altmann.

Spiritus meus attenuabitur, dies mei breuiabuntur, & solum mihi superest sepulchrum. — Iob xvii.

THE OLD MAN.
Death, playing on a dulcimer, leads him into his grave.

Mes esperitz sont attendriz,

Et ma uie s’en ua tout beau.

Las mes longziours sont amoindriz,

Plus ne me reste qu’un tombeau.
