Summer's Ending by Andrew Lang (1844 - 1912).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/summers-ending-by-andrew-lang/
Andrew Lang was a Scottish poet, novelist, literary critic, and contributor to the field of anthropology. He is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. The Andrew Lang lectures at the University of St Andrews are named after him. ( Wikipedia)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!

Summer's Ending by Andrew Lang, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
The flags below the shadowy fern
Shine like spears between sun and sea,
The tide and the summer begin to turn,
And ah, for hearts, for hearts that yearn,
For fires of autumn that catch and burn,
For love gone out between thee and me.

The wind is up, and the weather broken,
Blue seas, blue eyes, are grieved and grey,
Listen, the word that the wind has spoken,
Listen, the sound of the sea,—a token
That summer’s over, and troths are broken,—
That loves depart as the hours decay

A love has passed to the loves passed over,
A month has fled to the months gone by;
And none may follow, and none recover
July and June, and never a lover
May stay the wings of the Loves that hover,
As fleet as the light in a sunset sky.


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

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:
File name - all in lowercase: summersending_lang_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. summersending_lang_klh_128kb.mp3 )

ID3 tags (Version 2.30) ID Tags will be completed during cataloging.
