You could almost send this poem as a text.   If you think there's a disproportionate number of French poems in this selection,  well,  that simply shows the quality of language teaching at the School.   If you can do it,  writing in a foreign language is as fresh and magical as visiting the country itself.   Anyway,  the squirrels in England are mostly grey these days.
