Sous le dome epais
Ou le blanc jasmin
A la rose sĠassemble,
Sur la rive en fleurs,
Riant au matin,
Viens, descendons ensemble.

Doucement glissons;
De son flot charmant
Suivons le courant
Fuyant; Dans
LĠonde fremissante.

DĠune main nonchalante,
Viens, gagnons le bord
Ou la souree dort.
Et lĠoiseau,
LĠoiseau chante.

Sous le dome epais,
Sous le blanc jasmin,
Ah! Descendons ensemble!

Under a dome of white jasmine
With the roses entwined together
On a river bank covered with flowers laughing in the morning
Gently floating on it's charming risings
On the river's current
On the shining waves
One hand reaches
Reaches for the bank
Where the spring sleeps and
The birds, the birds sing.
Under a dome of white jasmine
Ah! Calling us
Together!

Under a dome of white jasmine
With the roses entwined together
On a river bank covered with flowers laughing in the morning
Let us descend together
Gently floating on it's charming risings,
On the river's current
On the shining waves,
One hand reaches,
Reaches for the bank,
Where the spring sleeps,
And the birds, the birds sing.
Under a dome of white jasmine
Ah! Calling us
Together!

The sculpture was originally titled Francesca da Rimini, as it depicts the 13th-century Italian noblewoman immortalised in Dante's Inferno (Circle 2, Canto 5)
who falls in love with her husband Giovanni Malatesta's younger brother Paolo.
Having fallen in love while reading the story of Lancelot and Guinevere, the couple are discovered and killed by Francesca's husband.
In the sculpture, the book can be seen in Paolo's hand.
The lovers lips do not actually touch in the sculpture to suggest that they were interrupted and met their demise without their lips ever having touched.

When critics first saw the sculpture in 1887, they suggested the less specific title Le Baiser (The Kiss).
