Other Poems, 1871-82 by Henry Kendall (1839 - 1882).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/other-poems-1871-82-by-henry-kendall/
This is the short last book in Henry Kendall's collected poems. This book contains miscellaneous poems of the native-born Australian poet, written later in his life, including poems dedicated to other notable Australian writers, such as Adam Lindsay Gordon. ( Carolin)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
      Please note that we handle a one month deadline for poetry projects!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/962
      please note that this link goes to a collection. You can find the poems for this project in the table of contents at the end of the right hand column under "Other poems, 1871-82". Please let me know if you need help!
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Hi, what do you want me to do about September?

In the middle of the poem there is no poem for September - just a note saying "see the poem in this other book called "September". I think reading that in the middle of the poem will be quite disruptive - shall I put it at the end or just leave it out altogether? I could read the whole September poem if you like - it's in this book, but it's very long...

EDIT: And I'll read Section 3 as well please.
