Espace Poemes: http://www.espace-poemes.com/poesies-celebres-themes. This site has well-known French poetry on it, separated by theme. You may also submit your own poems, which are also separated by theme. It is a great example of the modern technology that poets may use to share their work without being traditionally published. It also has some basic poetry terms that may prove useful.
France Web: http://www.franceweb.fr/poesie/enfants/poeme.htm#. On this site, there are poems written by young French children, accompanied by illustrations and sometimes even by animations. Poems and illustrations are hyperlinked by keywords on the homepage. I am excited to include poetry from young French children and I think my students will be excited as well. It will help springboard us into writing some formulaic but fun poetry.
