The Wood Burns Red and Other Poems

The Wood Burns Red and Other Poems

“I have become aware of a new dimension of poetry. Boys and girls from kindergarten age through adolescence appreciate the colorful ‘stuff’ of poetry once they experience it through the spoken word.” In this recording of her poetry, Roberta Goldstein applies her unique perspective, influenced in part by her background working with children in speech pathology. With vivid linguistic appeal, she describes a world filled with “dancing days and honeysuckle nights” (“Tattered Dreams”). Liner notes include a short author biography and text of all poems.
