Poetry with fragments of Jèrriais

Although there exists a substantial body of poetry written entirely in Jèrriais (for hundreds of examples, see Les Pages Jèrriaises), some poetry written and published in French, and even English, also contains some Jèrriais words and expressions.

The intention may be macaronic, or simply refer to realia and customs of Jersey life that would have been naturally expressed in Jèrriais by the writer and their audience.

Here are a few links to poems containing fragments of Jèrriais:
