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

shown below.



Death to the Maiden:

Alas Maiden, your red mouth,

Becomes pale now in this moment.

You like to dance with young boys,

You must have an opening dance with me.

The Maiden:

Oh woe, how terribly you have caught me,

All spirits and pleasure have left me.

I never want to dance anymore,

I am going away, farewell, farewell.
