Billy J. Barnum

Have you seen The Greatest Showman? Well, Billy Barnum is a direct descendant of Phineas Taylor Barnum, and he wrote a poetry book! Move Over Shakespeare was a delight to read. The poems were raw, honest,uplifting, and thought-provoking. "One by One" inspired me to get writing. "My Hair" had me laugh out loud. "Sycamore Tree" had me in awe. Many poems had me questioning life. I applaud Mr. Barnum for baring his soul with the world; it's not an easy thing to do. I wish I could write poetry as well as him. The pictures were a nice bonus. If you're a poetry lover, you won't regret picking up a copy of this book! - Abigail Wyvon (Wordpress) 5stars!

Billy J. Barnum

Move over Shakespeare: Tales from the Baron by Billy J Barnum's a collection of interesting poems that cover a wide selection of themes: nature, personal relationships and intimacy, dreams, self-introspection,adventure, life and death, and many others. Each poem has its own style, and this reflects the subject matter in each poem. Some are very short and succinct while others are long, comprising of several stanzas. The tone is friendly, at times serious, but it almost always gets the reader involved in the movements and the different currents running through the poems. This collection will have a unique and strong appeal to fans of poetry, particularly those who enjoy strong imagery and rhyme. Some of the poems are rhythmic and the short lines create a piece of music that rings beautifully to the ears. There are many stanzas that are insightful, and the reader will enjoy the moments when the author reflects on the realities of life, especially when the poems adopt a personal tone. One of my best poems in this collection is"My Inner Child," and the author compels readers to reflect on the struggle they endure when, at times, they have to respond to the demands of the child they once were or embrace the path of growth. Billy J Barnum's poetry is written in a simple style, but it contains poems that have deeper layers of meaning. There are precious gems in this collection and readers will find great entertainment here, enjoy the humor in the writing, and be transported in some of the adventures it offers. The poems are punctuated by images that are, in themselves, very telling. -Reviewed By Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite Review Rating:5 Stars - Congratulations on your 5-star review!
