Hi and welcome to Librivox!
There are a few things to do before you get started.
Have you completed a one minute test? If you have, well and good. If not, it is highly recommended - this is to check your specs are up to Librivox standards, and if not, you'll be given hints on how to remedy that. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test These poems are short enough that you could use one as your test rather than the quotation given -- just state that you are using a poem from a project. Once it is perfected, you can then just submit it here and save yourself some work (OK, not that much, but some 8-) )
Please post your test in the Listeners Wanted forum (see the dropdown at the bottom of the page) for the speediest response. Waiting for the OK may seem tedious, but can save time in the long run.
You will also need to be added to the catalog of readers. I will add you using your forum name, but if you prefer your real name or a pseudonym let me know. We can also link to a personal blog or website. If you click on your name in the Magic Window, you will see your own personal catalog page.
Be sure to read the first post - all the info you need is there, but if anything doesn't make sense, just ask. The wiki (see the top of the page) has bundles of info too.
Lynne

Edit: I have assigned 80, Columbus to you. Shakespeare's Fairies is #56, and has already been assigned. Look for sections with a blue background, that say "open" in the right-hand column.

Thanks so much for your help on this project Len! There is only one technical issue with this recording.

The volume is a little high at 93.2dB and should be between 86-92dB. Thanks!

Here is one of William Blake's most famous poems, "The Lamb," from Songs of Innocence, the companion poem to "The Tiger," from Songs of Experience.

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/cambridgepoetry_65_grahame_128kb.mp3
Duration: 1:26

Back in my teaching days, I once was working with a student teacher who was teaching this poem. The students didn't think much of it, and to my dismay, the young would-be teacher agreed with them. I didn't interrupt the class to correct the impression, although I was sorely tempted, but I definitely had a discussion with the young lady afterward. For one thing, I never disparaged a work of literature that I was teaching, because I discovered that there were always some students who liked and appreciated it. But the main reason that I was so disappointed in this instance is that "The Lamb" is a little masterpiece, absolutely capturing the whole concept of innocence in the way it so beautifully merges the lamb with the child and with Christ: "I a child and thou a lamb, / We are called by His name." I don't know whether I convinced the student teacher, but I hope that she knew better how to approach the poem the next time she might be called upon to teach it.
