The bilingual text beneath the image reads:

"But when that he found an old pris'ner he'd wounded
Who once saved his life when near drowning he swam,
The lion was tamed, and with pity confounded/
He cried over him just all one as a lamb."

"Mais quand il a trouvé un vieux prisonnier qu'il avait blessé,
Qui une fois lui a sauvé la vie alors qu'il a nagé au bord de la noyade,
Le lion a été apprivoisé, et avec pitié confondu
Il a pleuré sur lui juste comme un agneau."
