Louder Than Seeds

Cover Art by Mercedes Cecilia array of evolving presences...a treasury of discovery and self reacquaintance
Donald Phelps

....this tension between the lyrical and the practical, the soaring and the quotidian give her poetry its arresting and archetypical energy
Stanley Nelson

....the beauty of Roberta Gould's poetry lies in its sensitive, uncontrived  simplicity
Small Press Review
From the book:


Green sky turned over
The rain fell
as it never had
Long battle you'd think
the drops were soldiers
this side and that side
killing then marched
proudly home
and the skull god beaming

But it was only the rain!
Fat water filling the mouths of petunias
the din of a June outburst
and not flag history
and not the spilling of blood
but the drenched flowers drinking
