Sonnet IX by Hartley Coleridge (1796 - 1849).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/sonnet-ix-by-hartley-coleridge/
Hartley Coleridge, was an English poet, biographer, essayist, and teacher. He was the eldest son of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. His sister Sara Coleridge was a poet and translator, and his brother Derwent Coleridge was a scholar and author. Hartley was named after the philosopher David Hartley. This is the first of a two of Weekly Poems celebrate his birthday this Sunday. ( Wikipedia)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This pair of Weekly Poems has been suggested by Newgatenovelist.
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
Sonnet IX by Hartley Coleridge, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal URL.]
Then read the poem:
Long time a child, and still a child, when years
Had painted manhood on my cheek, was I,–
For yet I lived like one not born to die;
A thriftless prodigal of smiles and tears,
No hope I needed, and I knew no fears.
But sleep, though sweet, is only sleep, and waking,
I waked to sleep no more, at once o’ertaking
The vanguard of my age, with all arrears
Of duty on my back. Nor child, nor man,
Nor youth, nor sage, I find my head is grey,
For I have lost the race I never ran:
A rathe December blights my lagging May;
And still I am a child, tho’ I be old,
Time is my debtor for my years untold.

At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:
File name - all in lowercase: sonnetix_coleridge_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. sonnetix_coleridge_klh_128kb.mp3 )

I had to look it up.

'Rathe' rhymes with 'bathe.'
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?

Hi spatel2 , we need Sonnet 9 (IX) for this separate project. You've submitted Sonnet 4.
I think you have confused the two poems, best to do them one at a time and upload them separately to avoid confusion. :wink:

Oh, I totally got confused. Ok, I was supposed to upload this to another thread. Super sorry. In the meanwhile could you remove my name? I'll see if I can upload this later. Thanks!
