La Fuite de la Lune by Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/la-fuite-de-la-lune-by-oscar-wilde/
While at Trinity Collage, Oscar Wilde obtained a reputation for clever repartee and keen wit. He affected a superior air in his manners which irritated his fellow undergraduates, so that he once became the object of their practical joking. While at Oxford Wilde made his first essay in public as a writer by contributing several poems to Dublin magazines. - Temple Scott from the Introduction to Poems by Oscar Wilde (1906) ( )
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!

La Fuite de la Lune by Oscar Wilde, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
To outer senses there is peace,
A dreamy peace on either hand
Deep silence in the shadowy land,
Deep silence where the shadows cease.

Save for a cry that echoes shrill
From some lone bird disconsolate;
A corncrake calling to its mate;
The answer from the misty hill.

And suddenly the moon withdraws
Her sickle from the lightening skies,
And to her sombre cavern flies,
Wrapped in a veil of yellow gauze.

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.

Just one PL Note: at ~0:25, I hear "some lonely bird", the text is "some lone bird".

David -

Here's mine with a corrected title -

https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/delaluna_wilde_ps_128kb.mp3

Times the same - 0:48

I thought it looked a bit odd, but apparently not odd enough to motivate me to check it. :roll:
