The Age Of Innocence -by Cornish Poet Clive Blake (Phoetry - Visual Poetry - Concrete Poetry - Poetry)

The age of innocence,
A daughter we adore,
Long hot summer days,
A toddler only four.

Tadpoles in a jam-jar,
Watching as they wriggle,
Nature being studied,
Inviting her to giggle.

Eyes filled with laughter,
No clouds hide the sun,
Happiness a toddler's gift,
Enjoyed by everyone.

Wide-eyed and innocent,
To her, life's one big game,
If only we could join her ...
Be innocent once again.

This 'phoem' is titled "The Age Of Innocence” (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,
photography by Chris Robbins MPAGB, AFIAP.
