[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]


Then read the poem:

FAIRY snow, fairy snow,
Blowing, blowing everywhere,
Would that I
Too, could fly
Lightly, lightly through the air.

Like a wee, crystal star
I should drift, I should blow
Near, more near,
To my dear
Where he comes through the snow.

I should fly to my love
Like a flake in the storm,
I should die,
I should die,
On his lips that are warm.



At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.



Please leave a few seconds of silence at the end of your recording.

What a charming little poem. Here's mine. I do apologize for the quality of my mic.

Nice little ditty...

On a personal note, thought to add this as a test of my new iMac's built-in mike. (Don't even know where it's located. Probably somewhere along the bottom, among the air vents.) Anyway, it didn't come out too badly —although I should add as a disclaimer, I had to tag on a whole lot of effects to make it sound somewhat clean —hiding room and computer sounds...

Still, here it is. It's an unusual request I'm sure, but could you see which of these two sound better to you. I have a rather unforgiving set of headphones and I'm not certain which of these sounds better. The same recording but the effects are different. Thanks.

Definitely the second one, I think it has a hint more noise but sounds more natural. The first one drops out so dramatically between words that it is taking some of the word beginnings and ends with it. Also this is very quiet, needs about 14 or 15 db increase.

Here's mine as prose: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/200712/snowsong_teasdale_smm.mp3


And when I first read through it, it read like a nursery rhyme so I found myself improvising a nurseryrhymish melody ...
