No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
Niagara by John Campbell, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
A ceaseless, awful, falling sea, whose sound
Shakes earth and air, and whose resistless stroke
Shoots high the volleying foam like cannon smoke!
How dread and beautiful the floods, when, crowned
By moonbeams on their rushing ridge, they bound
Into the darkness and the veiling spray;
Or, jewel-hued and rainbow-dyed, when day
Lights the pale torture of the gulf profound!
So poured the avenging streams upon the world
When swung the ark upon the deluge wave,
And, o'er each precipice in grandeur hurled,
The endless torrents gave mankind a grave.
God's voice is mighty, on the water loud,
Here, as of old, in thunder, glory, cloud!


At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:

Thanks, David. Here's a fixed file. I had a burble mixed in with the second error you noted so it gave me a chance to fix that and I also fixt the last word "cloud" that I thought should be pronounced "clow" the first time around.
