The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XLII.

The Soldier

Cum fortis armatus custodit atriũ suũ, &c. Si autem fortior eo superueniens vicerit eum, uniuersa eius arma aufert, in quibus confidebat.

THE SOLDIER.
Death, armed only with a bone and shield, fights with the Soldier on the field of battle.

Le sort armé en jeune corps

Pense auoir seure garnison;

Mais Mort plus forte, le met hors

De sa corporelle maison.
