Un confit pour toi--A sweet for you

Aimeriez vous une chevaline rouge 
Composée de sucre d’orge?
(would you like a red horse made of barley sugar?)
Vous pourriez faire la race de
Plaines aux tires d’eponge.
(you could race across sponge toffee plains)
Vous amènera à un bosquet d’arbres
Faites de réglisses à la menthe
Ou des bariolé jujubes croissent au lieu de feuilles.
(would bring you to a grove of trees
Made of mint liquorices
Where multicolour jujubes grow instead of leaves).

For Debbie Guzzi's biLingual Poetry Contest
you wished for me to write something sweet, Debs:))

    I glad this poem was bi-lingual. Enjoyed what I read though I wish I could read French now. Also, I see from the comments that this won a contest. Congratulations!

    well, I am seeing this one won in the contest. It's a good thing. You sure put a lot of work into it!! Yes, I would love a cat, but until I can fix the odor the other one left in our carpet, I am afraid to get a new cat that might be affected to continue that nasty habit left by my Lilah cat!!

    The macaronic format is effective (I've used it myself a number of times) although ideally it would have the second language commenting on the text, or adding to it for an obvious reason (see my "Celery Fields" poem)...and not including a translation.

    Enjoyed your francophone poetry Michelle, I love the language, it's my mother tongue, bonne chance pour le concours, vie.

  1. Date: 8/6/2012 7:17:00 PM

    Yeah the language threw me off a bit...though I find the contest very interesting...good luck..I'll be on stand by to see your winning poem.

    Interesting. I love the imagery. Reminds me of Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.
