That was lovely, Ethan! Thank you for sharing here! PL OK and Magic Window updated!
It's fitting for Frost to write about snowy evenings and frozen lakes :mrgreen:

Hi Rapunzelina. :) I would like to read 'The Virgin Mother' by George William Russell and 'The Tyger' by William Blake. Is that okay? :)

Certainly! :D Preferred text source is gutenberg.org, so suggested text could be
https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/16615 for The Virgin Mother
and
https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/574 for The Tyger

Hello! I'm very new to Librivox, and this is my first poetry submission! :D

Is it alright if the poem is an excerpt from a novel? I was going through The Idiot and found this version of Pushkin's 'The Poor Knight' that I liked a lot, hehe.

The Poor Knight by Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) as adapted in The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/2638/2638-h/2638-h.htm (part two, section six)

Thanks!
