Thank you, Larry!

In the song of the poor, the Envoi is missing from the recording. Was that intentional?

Your poetic reading is quite mesmerizing :9:
Ho! Yep, Envoi needs to be there, so here is the amended file:

And, if I can squeak in my final selectin here at the wire from a poet who might be new to the LV catalog:

An Advanced Thinker by Brander Matthews. (1852 – 1929) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brander_Matthews

Welcome to Librivox, Dorothy! I'd love to have you contribute with a poem! For this poetry collection, readers choose the poem they'd like to offer. Maybe you have a favourite poem you'd like to record? Hopefully it is on Gutenberg.org. Just go ahead, record, and upload it!
Or, if that's not what you had in mind, and you'd like to record a pre-chosen poem, you could do the weekly poem or fortnightly poem. :D
The first post here, and in any project, should contain all the information you need as a new reader, but please ask if anything is unclear!

Thank you, Tomas! I think my favourite of those is "The New Vestments"!

So now I'll update the Magic Window, and then I'll start cataloguing this collection, and while that is happening, I'll set up the next collection!
Hopefully I'll post again shortly! :D
