To murder in cold blood all joy in life for him who has no money is a dreadful thing and that is what the moneyed man does.

Another Oscar Wilde poem recorded during my trip to Italy. I recorded it in the church where Wilde wrote the poem, and the monks were chanting away as monks tend to do. so maybe it doesn't pass the noise check. Let me know what you think.

Just a small question I have before perhaps contributing to this collection:
Is Wikisource a reliable... well... source for public domain works? I want to read "I measure every grief I meet" by Emily Dickinson, but there are conflicting reports regarding the copyright status of her works. Wikisource says that all of its texts must be in the public domain (or comply with its definition of "Free Content"). The Poets.org page says the poem was "used by permission of the publishers and the Trustees of Amherst College from The Poems of Emily Dickinson, Ralph W. Franklin ed., Cambridge, Mass.: The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, Copyright © 1998 by the President and Fellows of Harvard College."
So I'm kinda lost.

I think the poem is included in this collection on Gutenberg, and so it is OK for you to read it from this source.

Yeah, I think I'll read from here. I didn't want to because the second verse of the first stanza is different from other publications of this poem, but if the rest of it is the same, no harm done.

I'll contribute with this poem and a second one, I think

Some but not all Wikisource material is in the public domain. If it is, there will be a notation like the following at the bottom of the page:

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published before January 1, 1924.

The author died in 1940, so this work is also in the public domain in countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 75 years or less. This work may also be in the public domain in countries and areas with longer native copyright terms that apply the rule of the shorter term to foreign works.

Hi, Angie! Welcome to Librivox and the Poetry Collection!!! Congrats on your first recordings for Librivox! You have a lovely voice and it's great that you decided to start a hobby to use this asset :D
Your recordings are great! My only note is about the filenames; they need a "kb" at the end (_128kb.mp3). Just mentioning this for future use. I will be able to rename them at cataloguing, so no need to do anything more now. :thumbs:

Hello!

I have two more contributions for this collection:

Is the copyright status of these poems okay in the UK?

Many thanks,
Chad
Hi Chad! Thank you for your offerings! Yes, these are public domain in the UK, too :thumbs: (translator died in 1947)

Hi Rob! Thank you! I'm sorry it's taking me a couple of days. I think I'll be able to get to this by tomorrow evening. I'm looking forward to listening to the chanting ambience!

Edit: I actually had a listen now and it sounds majestic! I wonder, did anybody notice you were reciting a poem?!
It's PL ok, but I'll be able to update the Magic Window tomorrow evening :thumbs:

No worries. Sorry, I thought you had missed it in the flurry of posts. No, nobody would have noticed I was recording. I am not up on my names for different parts of a church, but this one had kind of upstairs / downstairs parts at the back. They were upstairs chanting away and I was downstairs in some sort of chapel. It was about 8am. These monks have a tough timetable!
