Reynard is dressed as a monk and looks steeped in piety as a rooster examines his credentials
To me the announcement he made that he a good monk had become,
Had taken the solemnest vow atonement to make for his crimes.

Description

Reynard has entered a henhouse dressed as a monk and looks humble and steeped in piety as a rooster standing on an overturned basket looks closely at his credentials.

The caption reads in the original German:
Und er zeigte mir an: er sei ein Klausner geworden,
Habe strenge Gelübde getan, die Sünden zu büßen.

The translation provided here is by John Storer Cobb.
