Depicting the exchange between Death and the Knight, this illustration is associated traditionally with the text

shown below.



Death to the Knight:

Mr Knight, you have been written down,

That you must practice chivalry.

With Death and his servants,

It helps you neither to struggle nor fight.


The Knight:

I - as a stern knight,

Have served the world well with noble mind.

Now I have been - against Knight's Orders,

Coerced to this dance.
