And did you? I’m trying to pick it up as I go along... He’s not an early read, even in prose.

Thanks for the quick PL!

Hi Kevin

Poems 1,2 3 and 5 are ready for PL.

I'm adopting Bridge's advice on Deutschland, the great dragon folded in the gate, to circumvent him and attack him later in the rear.

With good reason.

I just realized that you're not including the Bridges. Maybe that's for the best.

Thanks Kevin!

9, Spring, I'll have to re-do. To come.

11, The Sea and the Skylark, I’ve re-uploaded: https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/poemsgerardhopkins_11_hopkins_128kb.mp3

Sorry, I forgot to mention the "aims"/"alms" issue in 8, The Starlight Night. The word I've recorded ("alms") is actually right; “aims” is a Bartleby typo - see the original at Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/poemsofgerardman030114mbp/page/n40

I thought as much. I'm sorry I was too lazy to get my Hopkins off the shelf!

Just a couple of short ones: 6 and 16. I did say I'd be taking this slowly, I think .. :D
