Ces sont tous les poésies de Cendrine Marrouat?

Thank you!

Upon waking up this morning, I found your comments on my poetry. And then, I followed the link to your blog, and discovered that you mention my website. Wow! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

To answer the comment, yes, all the poems in the website were written by me.

Re: Thank you!

If you look around the main blog, you'll see that I do this a lot. I'm a very avid networker and I love showing marvelous discoveries to my friends. I actually have notes in my calendar reminding me to recommend a a community and a blog, periodically.

If you click the "poem" tag, you can read some of my poetry. I've done some that includes other languages, though I don't think there's one with French posted here ... only example of that I can remember is one about creole in Louisiana.

Also, I'm going to answer your email message here, since my email is currently inbound-only and refusing to send. I found your blog through Poetry Blog Rankings. (I'm listed as Elizabeth Barrette, alias Ysabetwordsmith, if you want to look me up there.) My partner, who has been enthusiastically promoting my poetry, has gotten intrigued with the site and came across your blog during one of his rating sprees. He was sufficiently impressed to call my attention to it. I was then sufficiently impressed myself to read a bunch of your poems beyond the three needed for rating, and to leave comments.

You're welcome to add me to your newsletter. I've got one too, mostly updates of where my writing has been published and what I'm working on currently. Would you like me to add you to that?

I appreciate you picking up on the comment, too.

I once wrote a poem in French. But it was one of my Dada-esque poems, mostly stuff cut and pasted together into nonsense. Lemme see if I can find it...

By = Opus Van De Oplicter*

L'éternuement est une expiration brusque et bruyante,
Semi-autonome ou involontaire réflexe par le nez,
Et la bouche provoqué par un mouvement subit et convulsif,
Et j'aime manger du fromage.

Il existe de nombreuses méthodes pour empêcher un éternuement,
En voici quelques unes sang...
Lever les yeux au ciel sans bouger la tête,
Chatouiller son palais avec sa langue!

Maintenir les yeux ouverts,
Plutôt que de se pincer le nez;
Regarder une lumière vive,
Serrer la racine du nez!

l existe pour cela une méthode développée parmi les,
Dans le cadre de la lutte contre le sras et la toux;
Mais qui vaut pour la tuberculose,
Par transmission aérienne des éternuements ou de la toux!

* = One of my nom de plumes.

Also, along these lines, you should check out this entry of mine.
