Welcome to Librivox and to the Poetry Collection, Brian! That is a great first recording, and a worthy addition to the catalogue of a new author :thumbs:

and my last for this month, describing the moment of Napoleon's coronation, but this poem is not a heroic poem, but rather blaming the protagonist for his ambition ;)

Hi:

I am beginning to have second thoughts about Tao Te Ching Cha. 11. Translating poetry from one language to another, and keeping any semblance of meter or structure is difficult enough, but keeping the essential meaning is nearly impossible. This comes the closest I can find, in those translations which are in Public Domain. See what you think.

Thanks
Dale

A final short one for May:

Oxford Meadows by William Force Stead (1884 – 1967)

I think he may be new to the LV Catalog, so here is a wiki link:
