The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXXVI.

The Duchess

Die Herzoginn.

De lectulo super quem ascendisti non descendes, sed morte morieris. — iiii. Reg. i.

THE DUCHESS.
Death seizes her in bed, while his fellow plays the fiddle.

Du lict sus lequel as monté

Ne descendras a ton plaisir.

Car Mort t’aura tantost dompté,

Et en brief te uiendra saisir.
