English version: Irene (www.slideshare.net/mrents) Sous le dôme épais où le blanc jasmin À la rose s'assemble Sur la rive en fleurs riant au matin. Doucement glissons de son flot charmant Bajo la bóveda frondosa, donde el blanco jazmín se entrelaza con la rosa. En la ribera florecida que le sonríe a la mañana. Deslicémonos suavemente en sus cautivadoras aguas. Under the thick dome where the white jasmine Assembles at the rose On the river of flowers laughing in the morning Come, let's descend together. Gently, let's slip around its charming flood Suivons le courant fuyant Dans l'onde frémissante D'une main nonchalante Viens, gagnons le bord, Où la source dort et l'oiseau, l'oiseau chante. Sigamos la corriente que huye. En la onda que una mano indolente estremece, Ven, ganemos la orilla donde el manantial duerme y el pájaro, el pájaro canta. Let's follow the fleeing current: In one trembling hand, One nonchalant, Come, let's find the bank Where the source sleeps. And the bird, the bird sings. Sous le dôme épais où le blanc jasmin À la rose s'assemble . Bajo la bóveda frondosa, donde el blanco jazmín se entrelaza con la rosa. Under the thick dome where the white jasmine Assembles at the rose
