It Certainly Would (by Cornish Poet Clive Blake) Phoetry - Visual Poetry - Concrete Poetry - Poetry)


When the wisest man in the world said
"It would be a tragic shame, if ever
'The Great Forest' were to be reduced
To a small clump of trees."
Everyone, without exception, answered
"It certainly would."

So when 'The Great Forest'
Was eventually reduced
To a small clump of trees,
That is what they decided to call it ...
'It Certainly Wood’.

This 'phoem' is entitled "It Certainly Would” (by Cornish Poet Clive Blake) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry,
from the 'Phoetry Book', View Points and Points of View".

I describe Phoetry as a fusion of poetry and photography.
I came up with the Phoetry concept in the early 1990s.
Phoetry can also be described as Visual Poetry and loosely described as Concrete Poetry.

The poetry is by Cornish Poet Clive Blake,
