Hello Wayne,

I'm glad this piece caught your interest; you did a brilliant reading of it! Your recording is PL OK! Thank you so much for your contribution! We will miss your recordings during your absence and I hope to see you back some time. Take care :9:

I know you are really busy, but if you could post and PL this soon it would be greatly appreciated. We are leaving and less than a week for an extended period of time (7 months), so if you could get to this it would be fabulous.

Wayne

next up, a very melancholic poem. This is a new author in the database, the poor woman had quite a difficult life and was still young when she died :(

"To an intimate friend" by Cynthia Taggart (1801-1849) (about her: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cynthia_Taggart )

Sonia
Still I admire that she could express herself through poetry. Thank you, Sonia, for this addition to our poetry collection, and author database!

PL OK and MW updated.
