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.

and here is another one:

"To my album" by Louisa Blake (????-????) / couldn't find anything about her. The intro of the book seems to hint that this was published by her family and friends, she probably died young after quite an ailing life :( the poem is very moody and deals with approaching death as well

A really great poem, some say it's his greatest, and I think it may be.

Hi Rapunzelina -

The anniversary of the battle of Towton is near, fought on Palm Sunday, 1461, between the Yorks and the Lancasters, reportedly the bloodiest battle ever fought on English soil. This song was written shortly after the battle possibly for the coronation of Edward IV, the Rose of Rouen, the winner of the battle.

The Rose of Rouen, by Anonymous

and my last for March:

"To the moon, seen from Headingley" by H. V. Elliott (1792-1865)
now this author took me a bit of detective work. I am not even sure whether he really wrote the poem, so if you prefer me to say "by Unknown or Anonymous" I can still change the intro. But my reasons for think it was Elliott are the following:
> the book has a dedication by H.V. Elliott, this is what set me off on that path and I looked him up
> he was a reverend and wrote hymnaries. This is mentioned here, where it is pointed out that his wife actually wrote some of the hymns: https://hymnary.org/person/Elliott_JA
> his dates and a bit of biography I found here: https://sites.google.com/site/brightonandhovediscoverer/home/people/people-index/henry-venn-elliott-and-family-1. It is mentioned that his wife is from Hallstead, Ullswater in the Lake District. Since a few poems deal with Hallstead, that was a further reason for me to believe that the poems were written by him

Let me know if there are issues.
THANK YOU!!
:clap:
Hello, Scott! Welcome to Librivox and to the Poetry collection! Thank you for contributing! Your recordings are great, all tech specs correct, and I personally find readings in English accents very engaging :mrgreen: My only comment would be to post more info with your links, depending on projects: all projects will require the duration of the recording, and the collections will further need the title and author in writing, makes it easier to collect the information, make any necessary checks and fill it in the Magic Window. So now you know for your next uploads :wink: Thank you so much!
Oh by the way, I have created an entry for you in our Reader database. It's here: https://librivox.org/reader/13954 and you can also get to it by your name-link in any Magic Window. It lists all projects you've read for, so it might look empty now, but I hope you enjoy recording and gradually fill it up! I've used your forum name for the catalogue, but let me know if you'd like to be credited by another name, like what you used in your recording.
