''Frost To-Night'' by Edith M. Thomas (1854 - 1925).

Quote:
Edith Matilda Thomas (August 12, 1854 – September 13, 1925) was an American poet who "was one of the first poets to capture successfully the excitement of the modern city."

This poem taken from the The Little Book of Modern Verse. 1917.; Jessie B. Rittenhouse, ed. (1869–1948) ( Wikipedia)

Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!

Quote:
“Frost To-Night” by Edith M. Thomas, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]


Then read the poem:

Quote:
APPLE-GREEN west and an orange bar,
And the crystal eye of a lone, one star …
And, “Child, take the shears and cut what you will,
Frost to-night—so clear and dead-still.”

Then, I sally forth, half sad, half proud,
And I come to the velvet, imperial crowd,
The wine-red, the gold, the crimson, the pied,—
The dahlias that reign by the garden-side.

The dahlias I might not touch till to-night!
A gleam of the shears in the fading light,
And I gathered them all,—the splendid throng,
And in one great sheaf I bore them along.
. . . . . .

In my garden of Life with its all-late flowers
I heed a Voice in the shrinking hours:
“Frost to-night—so clear and dead-still” …
Half sad, half proud, my arms I fill.


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

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.

Hi David-

My dahlias did very poor this year - too cold and too much rain. We only got a half dozen blooms out of 20 pots. :( Some of our other flowers did alright and the begonias are still pretty - no frost yet.
