© 2005 Spencer Shimko Flemish School (cont.) Under the Skull: I was as you are now. You will be as I am in the future. Above the flowers: As the beauty of the flower does not last long, a human being also quickly fades. Above the hourglass: Time runs fast, all youthful grace vanishes before one is aware of it. On the book, page 59: Oh human being you are a wandering guest on earth, flesh is the hay of the Lord, the same as a flower in a garden by cultivation reaches a higher level of quality. Page 60: as a lit candle has to burn so does a person have to fall into deaths hands. Across the timepiece: a metal of oblivion. On the paper on the ledge: Look and pray or you will face no day of peace.
