They say brevity is the soul of wit. To be sure, David Newell’s first poetry collection includes plenty of each: brevity, soul, and wit. The Poem Said┬ápresents nuggets of wit and wisdom from the professional wood carver and artist. As a bonus, the collection also features several visual images of the author’s many unique wood carvings.

David Newell

David Newell was an artist and wood carver, specializing in necklaces, animal and floral figures, and ornamental garden boxes. Mytho-poetic themes and imagery were a primary focus of his work. He spent his extra time playing banjo, making one-string puppets (like Murphy the Leprechaun Lawyer), and throwing spears with an atlatl on the spear golf course he built. He reconstructed the banjos, and made the one-string puppets and atlatls himself.
