Mamon in a Delve
Guyon findes Mamon in a delve,
Sunning his threasure hore:
Is by him tempted, and led down,
To see his secrete store.

Description

A knight in armor has gone down stairs made of high stones to meet an old man curled up over a pile of coins he keeps in his lap. As the coins keep falling off and the old man can’t seem to be able to get a grip on his treasure, a dead tree looking like a skeleton bends threateningly over him.
