Nature https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/poetryofsouthafrica_078_wilmot_128kb.mp3 18:00

The last poem is done!
I've also uploaded the corrected 084 for Spot PL.
The missing lines were in my original recording, so I must have cut them accidentally. But, there they are.

ok both poems extremely well read. Section 84 is already PL ok.

And wow Nature was a biggie :shock: I loved the very romantic/dramatic effusions you sometimes had in your voice in some parts. The author really was a bit too elated at times LOL

Here I have a few notes to correct:

> at 0:01: as the poem longer than 800 words (see first post), I guess you should have taken the full intro disclaimer, or is that optional ? As far as I’m concerned, it wouldn’t matter much, but it’s up to you.

> at 1:44: “The glowing softness of its ardent brow” – you say “radiant”, probably optional, as it’s not word-perfect

> at 8:50: “That varied Nature on their minds imbued?” – you start and then stop and restart again on this sentence, you can cut out the first part

> at 9:45: “For truth will charm though sung in echoed strain” – you say “snug

> at 17:55: you have 16 seconds of silence at the end which need to be cut down to 5

Almost finished :clap:

Oh, Sonia! Thank you so much. :9:

Yes, it was a long poem with a short title. :) And, after I uploaded it, I thought about the disclaimer, but hadn't changed it. I was so tired last night when I edited it, so I'm not surprised that I missed one edit. I can't believe I didn't trim the end because the file length I gave was the trimmed length. Well, okay, I can believe it. :roll:

Anyway, the corrections are all made, and the above are the NEW time stamps for you.

So, with your kind help along the way, we can get this one released to the waiting public.

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-poetry-of-south-africa-by-alexander-wilmot/

The multiple files at Archive should resolve as the project goes through the rederive that I just kicked off.
