    And they'll say 'this one is about that, and this one here is about her, and here, see this one: it is about love, about life, about precious time like ash on the wind, but here, this one is about something so beautiful, so tender that words cannot touch it, cannot tell it, except that somehow between the words this man here Will Barber could... by some subtle wizardry woven from his soul...

    Will is an amazing writer and a good friend. Apart from wonderful poetry that he posts, he occasionally writes to me and tells me funny real life stories that I swear he should publish. His barmy, mad scientist demeanor is just a disguise. He is really a sensitive barmy mad scientist. Best wishes Will Barber, it is a treat to have you on Poemhunter.com :)

Best Poem of Will Barber

I'M Cool With That

Come praise the stars, the wind, the rain
That course the earth; come praise the pain
And pleasure that the years bring forth:
Praise every particle of the Universe.

Doubt denials of the flame
Which courses through the hearts of men:
The ones who lose, the ones who win,
Are indistiguishable, in the end.

The wretched and the fortunate
Will join each other in the dark
Those who were wrong, those who were right
Will join each other in the Light.

Light and Dark will alternate
Eternally: this is man's fate.
Come, laugh; come, ...

Read the full of I'M Cool With That

A Hymn Of Praise

The keys and staves demark strait paths
The restless note must travel on;
The note's the beast that carries
The burden of the sound.

Music evokes a sympathy
In willing heart, the symbol of
A presence, constantly descending,
White wings of endless love.
