and my last one for this collection, found it as prologue to a novel.

What lover best by Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-1885) - Gutenberg names her as the author, even though the book itself says Anonymous. Can we trust Gutenberg in this ? :hmm:

Yes, since it says that it's by the author of “MERCY PHILBRICK’S CHOICE.”
I'm inclined to believe that the "By Anonymous" part was mistakenly added to the gutenberg text. This is a scan of the 1877 edition https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=njp.32101067647147;view=1up;seq=11


Anyway, the recording is PL OK and currently being added to the MW!
Thank you, Sonia!

Rapunzelina-

One more for this month, a little happier than the first two-

My Own Heart by Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/22403/pg22403-images.html
Duration: 1:15
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc172_myownheart_ps_128kb.mp3

Hopkins poems are a bit odd. Never figured out what a betweenpie was. The poem isn't titled in the Gutenberg version and can be most easily found by searching for "My own heart", the beginning words of the poem.

Here are my offerings for the month:

September, 1889 by Louise Brooks (????-????)

MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc172_summerautumn_ik_128kb.mp3

When Summer's End is Nighing by A.E. Housman (1859-1936) [Poem XXXIX]

I can't find biographical information for Louise Brooks - I hope that's not a problem.
Thanks and regards,
-Ian
