Thank you for your contribution with this poem. It's very nicely read and indeed the cough in that place if very appropriate!

https://librivox.org/reader/10075
This is your Reader page in the catalog. Notice the "Reader section details" link. It lists all your sections/claims in open projects so it's helpful keep track.

I've marked it PL OK, in other words: ready for the catalog! Congrats on your first librivox recording! :clap:
Note that the suggested ending silence for recordings shorter than 30 minutes is ~5 seconds. You'll also notice in other projects (info in first post) that the beginning silence for recordings longer than 30 minutes is ~10 second (and the suggested beginning silence is ~ 0.5-1 second). This is the guideline, but there's no need to be totally accurate if you're close enough like in this case, I'm just mentioning it as something to keep in mind (of course, feel free to reupload your poem if you'd like to practise editing the silences :mrgreen: )

We didn't have John Williamson Palmer in the catalog, so I'll have to add him. Always nice to have new additions :D I'm having some trouble determining his dates (birth-death) because when I googled his name to find a wiki page or something, other dates came up (1825-1906). Do you happen to know which one is the correct one???
I actually do not know his exact birthdate. I was looking up some old Civil War poetry (thought it might be an interesting read since I have a bit of an accent) and his name came up. Checked up on his work and it's mostly pre-1900 and copyright free. Sorry I can't be of more help! :|
