Dances of Death: The Soldier, Hans Holbein, 16th Century

Le sort armé en jeune corps           (The armed man in his young body)

Pense auoir seure garnison;            (Thinks to have secure garrison)

Mais Mort plus forte, le met hors   (But Death, stronger, puts him outside)

De sa corporelle maison.                (Of his corporeal house)
