Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!Lola Ridge, born Rose Emily Ridge (12 December 1873 Dublin – 19 May 1941 Brooklyn) was an Irish-American anarchist poet and an influential editor of avant-garde, feminist, and Marxist publications. She is best remembered for her long poems and poetic sequences, published in numerous magazines and collected in five books of poetry. Along with other political poets of the early Modernist period, Ridge has received renewed critical attention since the beginning of the 21st century and is praised for making poetry directly from harsh urban life.

[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Out of the lamp-bestarred and clouded dusk—
Snaring, illuding, concealing,
Turning to fairy-coaches
Scampering under the great Arch—
Making a decoy of blue overalls
And mystery of a scarlet shawl—
Knowing no impediment of its sure advance—
Descends the fog.
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.
