The Dance of Death

XI. - The Queen

THE QUEEN.
THE QUEEN.

[66]

Mulieres opulentŠ surgite, & audite vocem meam. Post dies, & annum, & vos conturbemini.

IsaiŠ xxxii.

Leuez uous dames opulentes.

Ouyez la uoix des trespassez.

Apres maintz ans & iours passez,

Serez troublÚes & doulentes.

Death, in the guise of a court-jester, drags away the Queen as she is leaving her palace.

We die only once, and for such a long time. -- Moliere
