Wow, Chip, I finally got around to listening to this and it is brilliant! If you put so much feeling and animation into all your readings, I would be thrilled. :) This reminds me of the scene in the Anne of Green Gables movie where she performs this (although in the book I believe she performs something else), a very memorable scene. I also have a very clear memory of reading this in a middle school English class and what an impression it made on me. Great job!

I would like to contribute some poetry... in German. :roll:

How do we want to handle it? Not at all? Just include it in "Short Poetry Vol. II"? Separate thread? Separate coordinator?

At a guess ... not discussed with anyone else ... we'd probably best have different collections for each language, with a moderator .. or at the very least, a reader/checker ... who can speak the same language.

I'm willing to volunteer to moderate a poetry collection in German, when there is any need of it.

Title: The Lady of Shalott
Author: Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Time:9:13

What do you think? For some reason I feel slightly self conscious about my poetry reading. There's just something about poetry that's different.

By the way, Chip I must chime in with my compliments as well on your reading of The Highwayman, and thank you for introducing me to such an interesting poem.

Raynr -- if you want to start a new german poetry thread over in Short Poems, go right ahead! You know what to do.

I might even read one, you never know. I memorized some Rilke in college. Der Panther, Herbsttag...

Kri -- So glad you've done this poem. I know that one bit from Agatha Christie's "The Mirror Crack'd" -- "Out flew the web and opened wide..." Listening now, sounds lovely.

Thank you :) I enjoyed doing it. I love the way the words just flow, and there's this great rhythm to the poem.

Twenty two poems now, so this collection is closed. Please save your poems for the next collection.


By the way, "Prufrock" was beautiful. I've never been a particular lover of T.S. Eliot's poetry, but that was very well done.

I've downloaded the other, later poems, but not listened yet .. I have now:

Ray, an odd little poem, well read; I'll have to have a look at others of hers. Especially for such a short poem, you could cut down the introduction to something like "Nobody, by Emily Dickinson, read for Librivox dot org by Ray Bush".

Kristin, thanks for the Lady of Shalott: that's my favorite painting; it's hanging in the Tate Gallery ... I drop in every year or so to get that little prickle behind the eyelids and to fall in love again.

.. and thank you, too Betsie.

Thank you all very much.

Peter

Peter -- it might be best, while we're still troubleshooting the validator, to fix the tags and filesnames of this batch on your own, then send them to me in a zip...

And thank you VERY much for handling this collection!

Ah well, I guess I should have read this far before recording The Raven by Poe. Maybe next time...

Oh don't worry, Chip, we'll be starting another short poetry collection in a day or two (When Peter has recovered from this one). So just hang on to The Raven for a little while...

I'm not worried about it. It was fun to do for its own sake. If anyone cares to listen to it, it's here:

Ok folks, your poems are finally cataloged:

http://librivox.org/short-poetry-collection-002/

I'm unlocking this thread for a short time. I hope each of you will check over your poems, make sure the links work, check my spelling, your name, your url, etc, and let me know if there's anything I need to fix.

Great job, everyone!
