LibriVox Short Poetry Collection 172

This project is complete and all audio files can be found in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/short-poetry-collection-172-by-various/

This is an open collection of poems for the month of September 2017. When this month is over, another one will be started. Don't despair if the sections are all filled up! I will add more sections as needed. :)

  1. How to record a poem - Initial Guidelines:
    • All poems read must be in the public domain (that is, not copyrighted).
    • You do not have to "sign-up" to submit a poem; as long as it's clearly in the public domain, just start recording!
    • There is a limit of 3 poems per person per collection.
    • Poems can be as short as you like, but not longer than 74 minutes (so as to fit in an audio CD)
    • To see what's been recorded already, you can search the LibriVox Catalog - but remember that we welcome multiple versions! :)

  2. Find a public domain poem:
    The Poets' Corner is a great resource for public domain poetry. Other sources to try are Bartleby and Project Gutenberg.
    • You may use other websites if you like, but they need to state date of publication (or book edition) to verify public domain status.
    • Please read from the text you post! You may not read from another source, as the other source may not be public domain!
    • See this page for more info on copyrights. You can always ask me in this thread if you're not sure whether a poem is public domain.

  3. BEFORE recording:
    • If you are new to LibriVox, please check the Recording Notes thread first.
    • If this is your first time recording, you'll find this useful as well: The Newbie Guide to Recording.
    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz (44100 Hz)
    Channels: 1 (Mono)

  4. DURING recording:
    • At the beginning of the recording, leave no more than one second of silence and read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
    "[Poem title], by [author], read for LibriVox dot org by [your name]" or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
    • Then read the poem.
    • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    • No recordings can be accepted without the LibriVox disclaimer.

  5. AFTER recording:
    ID3 tags: Not needed for this project. (You may put "Recorded by [your name]" in the comments section if you wish)

    Save file as:
    spc172_[poem's title in short form - no leading articles]_[your initials]_128kb.mp3
    Put file name all in lowercase, and the title all in one word (no leading articles - the, a, an, without the square brackets, please, and NO SPACES):
    e.g. spc172_roadnottaken_apc_128kb.mp3

    When submitting, please post in the thread, following this template:
    Quote:
    [Title of Poem] by [Author] (BIRTH-DEATH)
    Text URL:
    Duration:
    MP3 URL:


  6. Upload your completed recording:
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:
    http://librivox.org/login/uploader
    Image
    (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: Rapunzelina
    When your upload is complete, you will receive a link. Please click "Post Reply" at the top left of this thread, and post the link there.
    Also post the following information:
    • The title and author of the poem.
    • A link to the poem's text online (Poets' Corner, Bartleby, Gutenberg, etc.) so it can be verified as public domain. Please READ FROM the text you post!
    • The length of your recording in minutes & seconds.
    • If this is your first recording for LibriVox, please give us your name as you'd like it to appear in the catalog (that is, either your real name or some pseudonym). Also let us know if you have a personal URL you'd like to list (e.g. a personal blog).

PL Type: Special - Standard PL, plus checking all tech specs including ID tags, file names, volume, background noise, and plosives for new readers. For everyone, follow along with text and check to make sure any deviations from text don't affect rhyme, meter, or meaning.

A second short offering:

'Love Athirst' by Ruth Bassett Eddy (?-?)
Text: http://www.bartleby.com/334/626.html
Duration: 1.39
MP3: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc172_loveathirst_el_128kb.mp3

Rapunzelina, I'm very sorry, but I don't have information for this author. It looks like she was active in the US in the early twentieth century, but I haven't really found much beyond that.

Maybe it's just this one poem that was published by her. But it's a very beautiful poem!
and PL OK!
Thank you, Erin!

For my first one for this month I chose a translation from an old French poem. While I'm usually not a fan of blank verse, I think the poem is beautiful enough to deserve a recording :9: (and maybe I will record it in French as well one day)

If love is a sweet bondage by Madame de Sévigné (1626–1696), translated from French by Hugo Paul Thieme (1870-1940)
Madame de Sévigné seems not to be in your database yet, here some info about her:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_de_Rabutin-Chantal,_marquise_de_S%C3%A9vign%C3%A9
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17159
Duration: 1.53 min.
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc172_ifloveisasweetbondage_ss_128kb.mp3

edit: sorry I uploaded with an uncomplete file-name before, you can delete the second poem (without "if") in your folder

Rapunzelina,

I recorded this poem for "Cowboy Songs" by mistake, as someone else had already claimed it. It seemed a shame to discard it.

Title & Author: Young Charlottie - Author unknown

Text: Cowboy Songs and other frontier ballads, collected by John Lomax (first published 1910)
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/21300
Duration: 3.57
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc172_youngcharlottie_py_128kb.mp3
