(Pierre de Ronsard)
** SUMMARY **
A Karmic Lesson
In primary school, Gilles' favorite book was the Fables of La Fontaine, with its clever stories and profound lessons about life. He read the poem placed on the site's home page at age 8, and kept a copy of it with him ever since. It touched him that deeply.
Indeed, La Fontaine's words describe him quite well.
During his high school years, he always won high praise for his colorful recitations of poems during French literature classes.
He never imagined he would be writing poetry someday...
Gilles is a member of
the Poetry Society of America & the Academy of American Poets
