Hi Algy Pug!
This recording turns out to be "September" by Madison Cawein (instead of Solitude by Pope). So I'm not sure if you intended to upload this one. May I still accept your submission? I can use http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/30830 as the text source http://www.gutenberg.org/files/30830/30830-h/30830-h.htm#SEPTEMBER (and I can also fix the filename to spc136_september_alp_128kb.mp3)
And it will be PL OK :D

Oh I just saw the Weekly Poetry in the Launch Pad! So I guess there was a mix-up in the uploads :)

I've suddenly been struck with a dozen technical and audio issues that I never had trouble with before; I think I got them figured out, though I might have some bad Fs in there (not Bs, Ps or THs, just Fs *shrug*). I admit I'm not the biggest fan of criticism, but so many things went funky lately that this might be a good time for me to brave it and ask you to mention any issues you notice, before I go recording a faulty solo.

My comments can only be positive. The sound is clean and clear as if I'm in the same room with you; no electronic distortions whatsoever!

Thank you for your contribution! It's now in the Magic Window and marked PL OK!

Last week's weekly poem reminded me of this one - I thought it was quite well known, but it doesn't seem to be in the database.

Hi Rapunzelina,

With thanks to Algy for suggesting this one, here's an early poem of T. S. Eliot:

Humouresque by T. S. Eliot (1888-1965)

Thank you, Ian! Yes, it would have been great to have this in September's collection, but it is not in the public domain. See the note at the text url, this was taken from a publication of the Viking Press in 1950. I think this poem is one that was published after Bronte's death, and even after 1922, so we can't record it in the public domain. I'll keep looking in case I'm mistaken...

Hi Rapunzelina.
I had carelessly assumed that all of Emily Brontë's works must be PD by now. Obviously not the case.
Thanks for your help.
