I've been told by a more experienced Librivoxer that the opening silence length doesn't much matter as long as it stays under 1 second, so I've marked 60 as PL OK. Sorry about that. Still need the small fix in 58.

OK!

I did a spot fix on Section 58. Not my best, but I recorded it at a weird timbre the first time. ^^; From 0:26 to the end.

One again I am very impressed at your seamless patching. Section 23 is PL OK.
All the marked fixes are also PL OK in Section 22, but at 1:48, where the text had "sun-dabbled streams" and the original recording had "sun-dappled dreams," you now have "sun-dabbled dreams"--"dreams" still needs to be replaced with "streams."

Thanks. ^^ And, lol, I totally misread that correction I-don't-know-how-many times.

This is just to say that I did the track leveling. It's a lot better, but there's nothing new to PL. ^^;

Thanks! Section 22 is PL OK.

And next time I'll use your all-caps method for the spots that need changing--that should make things clearer.

In section 46:
0:20 “He whose might you sang so well” I heard “He whose might sang you so well” which does alter the rhythm and suggests a possible different meaning

Thanks, and sorry for the slow reply. Two very minor issues, both of which you should feel free to ignore:

At 0:24 for “who STAND in such imperious need of you” I heard “who STANDS”

At 0:30 for “HAPPILY on your passion’s frigid breast” I am hearing “HAPLY,” suggesting a different meaning to my mind... but this may just be a pronunciation difference.

Thank you! Sections 9, 10, and 11 are PL OK and strongly read.

I've been listening to these promptly for two reasons--I try to proof-listen promptly in general because often if I don't do things when they first come up they slide into the pile of Things To Do Someday and are lost there. But also these poems speak strongly to me and I'm eager to hear them.

I had not remembered "Tableau" for some while now, but as soon as it began I remembered how my white aunt (dead these many years) who married my black uncle used to recite that poem and look at their son, who didn't get to remain oblivious to look and word very long.
