Consolation by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806 - 1861).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/consolation-by-elizabeth-barrett-browning/
This Weekly Poem is taken from The Queens' Garden - Poems by Elizabeth Barrett Browning and others. ( David Lawrence)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This Weekly Poem was suggested by Elizabby.
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
Consolation by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
ALL are not taken ! there are left behind
Living Beloveds, tender looks to bring,
And make the daylight still a happy thing,
And tender voices, to make soft the wind.
But if it were not so, — if I could find
No love in all the world for comforting,
Nor any path but hollowly did ring,
Where “dust to dust” the love from life disjoined --
And if before those sepulchres unmoving
I stood alone (as some forsaken lamb
Goes bleating up the moors in weary dearth),
Crying, “ Where are ye, O my loved and loving?”
I know a Voice would sound, “ Daughter, I AM.
Can I suffice for Heaven, and not for earth ? ”

At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:
File name - all in lowercase: consolation_browning_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. consolation_browning_klh_128kb.mp3 )


ID3 tags (Version 2.30): ID Tags are completed during Cataloging

Thank you Larry, at 0:44 you've left out the word 'Crying" - "Crying, “ Where are ye, O my loved and loving?”

Hi David

A couple of minor corrections:

:33
but hollowly did ring,
I heard
but hollowing did ring,

0:37
the love from life disjoined
I heard
the love from life disjointed

Cheers
