The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXXIX.

The Young Child

Das Junge Kind.

Homo natus de muliere, breui viuens tempore repletur multis miserijs, qui quasi flos egreditur, & conteritur, & fugit velut vmbra. — Iob xiiii.

THE YOUNG CHILD.
As the meagre cottage meal is preparing, Death steals the youngest child.

Tout homme de la femme yssant

Remply de misere, & d’encombre,

Ainsi que fleur tost finissant.

Sort & puis fuyt comme faict l’umbre.
