Thank you, Amatullah! Welcome to Librivox and to the Poetry Collection! Your reading is lovely and your recording is what we say PL OK (meaning perfect for cataloguing! :mrgreen: )

I will update the Magic Window a bit later, so don't worry that your poem is not there yet. Here's your Reader Page: https://librivox.org/reader/14470 and you can also access it from your name-link in any magic window. It lists all the projects you've read for, and it can help you keep track of your sections in current projects under the "Reader Section Details"

Hope you'll enjoy it here! :clap:


Edit: Magic Window updated
Thank you so much :)

next up, a really short poem:

"The sloe was lost in flower" by A. E. Housman (1859-1936)
Text URL: https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.93367/page/n47/mode/2up
https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc205_sloewaslostinflower_ss_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 0:40 min.

Gave me lots to think about, the meaning of the two short stanzas are quite open for interpretation. :hmm:

and my last one for this month:

"The grave of Howard" by Lewis Way (1772-1840)
Text URL: https://archive.org/details/poems00wayl/page/n17/mode/2up
https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc205_graveofhoward_ss_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 2:02 min.

I didn't know anything about this Howard in the poem and did a little research, he made a lot of prison reforms, seems like a decent person: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Howard_(prison_reformer)
