Here's a second Mowatt poem from me. I hope I didn't skip any lines this time!

"Time"
by Anna Cora Mowatt (1819-1870)

read by Kelly S. Taylor (ktaylor07)

Text URL: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015012992304&view=1up&seq=293&size=150 (Rufus Griswold's "Female Poets of America" 1849 )

Duration: 2:11

All good with this recording! Marked PL OK in the Magic Window!

I'll mention two things, optionally, for future recordings (no need to change anything here).
One is about the slight background white noise, you could try Noise Reduction in Audacity and see if it sounds any better. The background noise is pretty light so it might not make a huge difference, but you can just experiment and see if you like the result.
The other is about the ending silence; about 5 seconds should be enough. It felt a bit longer now, so I'll see if I truncate it to match the rest.

I'm looking forward to "Love" now!! I enjoy your poetry reading!

Ah! Joy! Joy! :D :D

Here is the next one then. I worked on white noise. Hope this is better!

"Love"
by Anna Cora Mowatt (1819-1870)

Yes, in my opinion it has improved, I can't hear any background noise at all!

Yet another lovely poem! Thank you Kelly!
