Wishes by Dora Sigerson Shorter (1866 - 1918).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/wishes-by-dora-sigerson-shorter/
Dora Maria Sigerson Shorter was an Irish poet and sculptor, who after her marriage in 1895 wrote under the name Dora Sigerson Shorter. This poem is taken from The Fairy Changeling and Other Poems . ( Wikipedia)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
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!
Wishes by Dora Sigerson Shorter, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
I wish we could live as the flowers live,
To breathe and to bloom in the summer and sun;
To slumber and sway in the heart of the night,
And to die when our glory had done.

I wish we could love as the bees love,
To rest or to roam without sorrow or sigh;
With laughter, when, after the wooer had won,
Love flew with a whispered good-bye.

I wish we could die as the birds die,
To fly and to fall when our beauty was best:
No trammels of time on the years of our face;
And to leave but an empty nest.


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: wishes_shorter_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. wishes_shorter_klh_128kb.mp3 )

Good first reading Josh. :D
The only comment is the noticeable background noise of 51.7 dB, this is easily fixed in this video tutorial here.

Thanks you for the advice; I’ll try that next time! For the name, my username is fine. I don’t know what the normal conventions are here as I’m so new to LibriVox. -Josh
