Hello!
There are no limitations on topic.
The only limitation for Librivox is the public domain status.
So any text is OK, as long as it's in the public domain :D

"I find I cannot exist without Poetry—without eternal Poetry—half the day will not do—the whole of it—I began with a little, but habit has made me a Leviathan."

Hello! I uploaded a file yesterday ("My Country"), which is a tad too loud. I have made adjustments to the volume, checked it, and re-uploaded it here:

All the other info is the same.

Thanks!

Hi there,

Well, here is my first attempt at a poem for Librivox. Hope it is OK.

It is A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief by Jame Montgomery b. 1771.
