Yeah, that's not William T. Kirk :mrgreen:
I believe all of these authors are already in the LV catalog.

Thank you, April! Indeed it fills a spot in the MW :clap: Don't worry though, I do add more sections as needed, and delete any blank sections at the end, since this is a monthly collection.
Could you also add the phrase "read for Librivox dot org." in the intro? Like: "[Poem title], by [author], read for LibriVox dot org by [your name]". The "by your name" can be optional if you prefer ;)
