Barbara Goldstein

Barb, retired from teaching music, attracted by rhythm and rhyme, speaks best in poetry. When she was eight-years-old she wrote a poem because she wanted and probably still wants to know everything.

I Want to Know
I want to know just everything that
keeps a fella wondering
why red is red and green is green
why good God cannot be seen.
And is it true the earth is round or is it
just that someone found a fairy story in a book
to make some people think and look?
And are people always what they seem and
do they say the things they mean?
I want to know my life but now I cannot imagine living without it!
I truly love it and I know you will too!
