Schneberg] will speak for us, hear us, know our secret trouble, our intimate imagery and behavior. She has the life-strength, curiosity, perception, language. To read her is to learn that we survive by caring for strangers. Willa Schneberg is a poet with healing power. I read her with gratitude.
Milton Kessler
This is the other side of the lullabyequal parts reassurance and warning the night world where the woman sleeps alone on old sheets, listening as the child listens, for the new and terrifying inflection of familiar sounds, foot-tap, pipe knock and something else: the enormous insistent music of her own waking, the aubade of her own voice.
Carol Muske.
