Thank you, Michael and Craig! All great and PL OK!

I just came from the Horror Collection where I listened to two stories about vampires, so that poem completed the set! :!:

Hi Rapunzelina. I need to delay my recording of my two poems. My computer is acting up and in the shop. :oops:

Oh, I hope it's resolved! No worries about any delays. There's no deadline, and there's always a collection running each month :)

Hi Bill! Welcome to Librivox and to the Poetry Collection! I checked your webpage! Very interesting!

I'll give you a couple of PL notes for you to practice editing :mrgreen:
You could delete the first 3 seconds "This librivox recording is in the public domain". The rest of the intro and outro that you have covers the disclaimer. :thumbs:
At current 00:25, the text is "Thy distant mountains spiring to the sky," I think you say "spring". This is an optional edit, but I am mentioning it in case you decide to change it.

Thank you for contributing, and congrats on your first librivox recording! :clap: This is your Reader Page in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/reader/14070 You can also access it by clicking your name-link in any Magic Window. It lists all the projects you've read for, so it might look empty now, but you sound talented! I hope you enjoy recording and gradually fill it up!

Done.

'Oh, No! We Never Mention Her' by Thomas Haynes Bayly - 13 October 1797 – 22 April 1839

Note: Librivox has him as 'Thomas Haynes Bayly' as does Wikipedia and most other sites. But Oxford's biography lists him as 'Nathaniel Thomas Haynes Bayly', which many others have taken as a source.

https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc203_sonnet29_pt_128kb.mp3

Sonnet 29 by William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
Duration:1:12
Source: https://theotherpages.org/poems/sonnet02.html

There is a typo in this Poets Corner version on line 3 "deal" should be "deaf" ("deaf heaven")

This is topical under the lockdown, as Shakespeare was in lockdown, probably due to the plague and the theatres were all closed. The sonnet itself is also relevant. ("and look on myself and curse my fate" - "and then my state" - "change my state with kings")

One of his greatest sonnets and a favourite of mine.

Peter
