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

shown below.



Death to the Young Man:

Young Man, where will you go?

I will lead you another way.

There you will find your paramour,

This I announce to you now.

The Young Man:

With carousing, drinking and with feasting,

Partying at night in the streets.

In this I had my joy and pleasure,

I thought little of departure.
