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

shown below.



Death to the Noblewoman:

Noblewoman, stop styling your hair,

You must now dance with me here.

I do not spare your yellow hair,

What do you see in the clear mirror?


The Noblewoman:

Oh fear and distress, what has happened to me?

I have seen Death in the mirror.

His awful figure has terrified me,

So the heart in my body is cold.
