Thank you so much!!
I'll have my last two in, and then hope to get the corrections from Farrah, and we'll be ready.

Here is the Ode to Silence. Just a couple of slightest slips that I'll let go. Not real happy with this reading -- too fast on the pacing, but I haven't got it in me to do over. (It is true I'm never totally satisfied with my recording. It is hard listening to oneself and know that here, or there. or over there something could have been better).

And, the opening poem:

I had to do a couple of patches which, well, sound like patches. :( But, I don't think a second try would get me any closer to perfection, so this is what we get.....

Also had problems uploading this second one, not long after uploading the previous one. Kept getting syntax error messages.

Section 1 is PL OK! Section 60 has only one PL note: I heard "Nor near a Heaven’s lord" and the text says "Nor near to Heaven’s lord". I think this changes the meaning since the text implies one god and the recording implies multiple gods.

I think you did a good job! Don't worry too much - those poems are really long and draining. I didn't hear the sound patches so I don't think they are that noticable to the listener :D
