A Wish by Samuel Rogers (1763 - 1855).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/a-wish-by-samuel-rogers/
Samuel Rogers was an English poet, during his lifetime one of the most celebrated, although his fame has long since been eclipsed by his Romantic colleagues and friends Wordsworth, Coleridge and Byron. His recollections of these and other friends such as Charles James Fox are key sources for information about London artistic and literary life, with which he was intimate, and which he used his wealth to support. He made his money as a banker and was also a discriminating art collector. ( Wikipedia)

[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
Mine be a cot beside the hill,
A bee-hive's hum shall sooth my ear;
A willowy brook, that turns a mill,
With many a fall shall linger near.

The swallow, oft, beneath my thatch,
Shall twitter from her clay-built nest;
Oft shall the pilgrim lift the latch,
And share my meal, a welcome guest.

Around my ivy'd porch shall spring
Each fragrant flower that drinks the dew;
And Lucy, at her wheel, shall sing
In russet gown and apron blue.

The village-church, among the trees,
Where first our marriage-vows were giv'n,
With merry peals shall swell the breeze,
And point with taper spire to heav'n.

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.

This is my first contribution so, please, check everything twice and let me know if I need to fix anything!

I feel like I must have missed something since mine is shorter than others I've seen. That doesn't make any sense because I'm from the South!

Anyway, here is mine. It lasts 0:55.
