Well,
I know it's on the cusp, time-wise, but here it is.
"Not too bad for a first attempt", said the people I was Skyping with at the time when I decided to record, so I hope their right.

Insidentally, do I need to keep the file up or will it be copied by you guys? (Again, new to all this...)

Cheers - that was quite fun actually!

Sean -- wonderful reading! Thank you so much. You've brought us up to ten different version of this one!

I've got the file on my local computer now, so you can take it down from your webspace if you like. I'll be handling all the cataloging, etc., and sometime next week all these Cow poems will be up on our catalog page for all the world to hear.

Now go read something else for us :)

And a suggestion; any of us who write poetry and are willing to put it into the public domain, put it up for recording ... and for possible collection into one book?

Thanks everyone for the fine recordings. They will soon be cataloged on archive.org here:

Hope I spelled everyone's name correctly -- email me if I goofed and I'll fix it up. :)
