कृतान्तः कर्कशाचारो जरां नीत्वाऽजरं वपुः ॥ ६ ॥

grasate'virataṃ bhūtajālaṃ sarpa ivānilam |
kṛtāntaḥ karkaśācāro jarāṃ nītvā'jaraṃ vapuḥ || 6 ||

As the heinous serpent feeds upon the air, so does cruel Death ever swallow the living. He ripens the body with old age to create his zest, and then devours all animals warm with life.
