Thank you Tom, good first reading.

* I corrected your filename in the Magic Window, it is best to copy/paste the filename from the opening post (inserting your initials of course!)
File name - all in lowercase: trifles_mcneill_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
e.g. rifles_mcneill_klh_128kb.mp3
we need the _128kb for cataloging purposes.

Hello Aradlaw. My apologies. Fyi: Actually, I did try to be careful. I saw that "tags" would be added automatically. Knew that was "MP3" but unsure about 128kb. Anyway, had Checker assess my recording. It wouldn't accept my recording which had "128kb" in the title so I assume that this was a tag like "MP3" and took it out. Just wanted you to know I was trying to get it right. Lesson learned. Thanks

If I remember correctly, Checker is a few years old now, before the _128kb requirement became the norm, so it would show as an error.
Yes, "tags" refer to the metadata - title, author, track number, etc.. which is taken from the Magic Window data during cataloging.

Just one tiny error! Line 2 of the third stanza should read 'ever trifle' -- it sounds
like 'every trifle.' Otherwise, PL OK!

It still sounds like you're saying 'every trifle' as opposed to 'ever trifle.' :D :D :D

But, is a "long, long kiss" a "trifle?"
