    The raw-ness, the girtty depth, the Susan jane Goldner 1984 makes Susan jane Goldner's poetry.

    Her poetry is universal and personal at the same time, something that only a remote selection of poets can achieve.

    Keep writing Susan jane Goldner. and yes, I like repeating your name..

    After reading much of your poems, I think I can comfortably say that you portray a side of human nature that is not normally sailed into - or it is, and we just brush it away from our mind's eye. But you display it in portraits, usually so succinct (appropriately, I might add) but potent, that embed themselves into the reader's (at least my) mind. Finding those little odd trinkets in everyday life makes the humanity in your poems quite puissant and unlike alot of the stuff I have read.

    The Poems of Susan Jane Goldner explore the Heights and depthS of huMan experience. Humor is a characteristic device - second only to beauty - of her techniques.

    I wish I had more space and more time and I would display properly the array of emotion I come in contact with while reading your poetry. Absolutely brilliant in its depth and language. Your use of color and form and tone are amazing. The knowledge you posssess and the experiences you've had make for the best poetry I've read in a long while. I think that given a few more years we'll be looking at yet another success story in the world of published poetry. The best and the worst of this world as well as everyday happenings (which in my opinion make the greatest poems) are all reflected in your poetry. Take care and keep that pen full!

Best Poem of s./j. goldner

A Rose In Birth

I'm a disgrace to the life
I lived as a girl—
she would be ashamed
to have me in the world.

But there's no turning back;
it's time to pay the price
for selfish pride
and evil vice.

Or pack up my things
and leave this great earth—
would you put in place
a rose in birth.

Cause thorns I've got
it's the petals I lack;
beauty should unfold:
this is no unknown fact.

With this request I must be going—
please all take care,
boys and girls
handsome and fair.

Read the full of A Rose In Birth

Handprint On A Wave

She knew how memory worked.
Last time she had seen him
he had been perfected
Ly etched in her mind;
She didn’t want to replace that
with anything less
Than what she had known.
She knew how memory worked—
How memory faded
