LibriVox Short Poetry Collection 185

This project is complete and all audiofiles can be found in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/short-poetry-collection-185-by-various/

This is an open collection of poems for the month of October 2018. When this month is over, another one will be started. Don't despair if the sections are all filled up! I will add more sections as needed. :)
  1. How to record a poem - Initial Guidelines:
    • All poems read must be in the public domain (that is, not copyrighted).
    • You do not have to "sign-up" to submit a poem; as long as it's clearly in the public domain, just start recording!
    • There is a limit of 3 poems per person per collection.
    • Poems can be as short as you like, but not longer than 74 minutes (so as to fit in an audio CD)
    • To see what's been recorded already, you can search the LibriVox Catalog - but remember that we welcome multiple versions! :)
  2. Find a public domain poem:
    The Poets' Corner is a great resource for public domain poetry. Other sources to try are Bartleby and Project Gutenberg.
    • You may use other websites if you like, but they need to state date of publication (or book edition) to verify public domain status.
    • Please read from the text you post! You may not read from another source, as the other source may not be public domain!
    • See this page for more info on copyrights. You can always ask me in this thread if you're not sure whether a poem is public domain.
  3. BEFORE recording:
    • If you are new to LibriVox, please check the Recording Notes thread first.
    • If this is your first time recording, you'll find this useful as well: The Newbie Guide to Recording.
    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz (44100 Hz)
    Channels: 1 (Mono)
  4. DURING recording:
    • At the beginning of the recording, leave no more than one second of silence and read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
    "[Poem title], by [author], read for LibriVox dot org by [your name]" or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
    • Then read the poem.
    • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    • No recordings can be accepted without the LibriVox disclaimer.
  5. AFTER recording:
    ID3 tags: Not needed for this project. (You may put "Recorded by [your name]" in the comments section if you wish)

    Save file as:
    spc185_[poem's title in short form - no leading articles]_[your initials]_128kb.mp3
    Put file name all in lowercase, and the title all in one word (no leading articles - the, a, an, without the square brackets, please, and NO SPACES):
    e.g. spc185_roadnottaken_apc_128kb.mp3

    When submitting, please post in the thread, following this template:
    [Title of Poem] by [Author] (BIRTH-DEATH)
    Text URL:
    Duration:
    MP3 URL:
  6. Upload your completed recording:
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:
    http://librivox.org/login/uploader
    Image
    (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: Rapunzelina
    When your upload is complete, you will receive a link. Please click "Post Reply" at the top left of this thread, and post the link there.
    Also post the following information:
    • The title and author of the poem.
    • A link to the poem's text online (Poets' Corner, Bartleby, Gutenberg, etc.) so it can be verified as public domain. Please READ FROM the text you post!
    • The length of your recording in minutes & seconds.
    • If this is your first recording for LibriVox, please give us your name as you'd like it to appear in the catalog (that is, either your real name or some pseudonym). Also let us know if you have a personal URL you'd like to list (e.g. a personal blog).
PL Type: Special - Standard PL, plus checking all tech specs including ID tags, file names, volume, background noise, and plosives for new readers. For everyone, follow along with text and check to make sure any deviations from text don't affect rhyme, meter, or meaning.

Hi Sonia,

Your poet is Rose Fyleman. You can find that poem in this collection at Gutenberg Canada: https://gutenberg.ca/ebooks/fyleman-chimneys/fyleman-chimneys-00-h-dir/fyleman-chimneys-00-h.html.

:shock: thank you so much for this find. And you know what, I even recorded another Fyleman fairy poem a few months ago and I actually should have noticed the same style. :| But I didn't think of her this time.

The poem is reuploaded with the correct author credit:

I just noticed that Rose Fyleman is not public domain for me yet, due to her death date. So please discard this poem "The fountain". I will choose another one for this month.

Hi Rapunzelina -

Here's one for this month -

Alaric at Rome, by Matthew Arnold (1822-1888)
Text URL: https://archive.org/details/alaricatromeothe00arnorich/page/n35
Duration: 14:41
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc185_alaricatrome_ps_128kb.mp3

There was a number at the beginning of each stanza which I didn't record.

all right, second try ;)

"Sonnet on taking a favourite walk, after recovery from sickness" by Thomas Oldham.
Again I don't know who exactly the author is, but in the preface the date 1840 is given so he is surely PD :lol: I found one Oldham who would fit in the timeline, but he was a geologist. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Oldham
Of course that could explain the sentence in the preface "The writer of the following pages has been in the habit, for many years, of amusing himself with the composition of Poetry" it means he is not a poet as such and has another job maybe :hmm: But we can't be sure of course. Maybe someone finds another one that fits better.
