French poem describing a person/people - family/friends?

    Does anyone have a suggestion for a poem in French which would fit in with the GCSE self/family/friends topic? I'm looking for a poem rather than song lyrics. It's for a high ability Y10 group, I'd like to do something where they read a poem and then create their own version to practise describing people. I've searched online but all of the ones I've found are very complex language and are either more about the concept of family/friendship, or are about a dead family member which I don't really want to do in case any pupils find it upsetting. If anyone knows of a poem which has more child/teen-friendly language and themes, that would be really helpful.
