Michael Angelo's "Dawn" by Margaret Steele Anderson (1867 - 1921).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/michael-angelos-dawn-by-margaret-steele-anderson/
Dawn is a sculpture by Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo, executed for the Medici Chapel in the area of the tomb of Lorenzo de' Medici in Florence, Italy.

It is part of a second pair (the second being Dusk), which followed Day and Night in his work on the Chapel. ( Wikipedia)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
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!
Michael Angelo's "Dawn" by Margaret Steele Anderson, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
Dawn - midnight - noonday? What are times to thee?
Man's Grief art thou, that moanest with the light,
And starest dumb at evening - and at night
Dost wake and dream and slumber fitfully!
Thou art Distress - that cannot cry aloud.
That cannot weep, that cannot stoop to tear
One fold of all her garment, but with air
Supremely brooding waits the final shroud!

Dust, long ago, the princes of this place;
Forgot the civic losses which in thee
Great Angelo lamented; but thy face
Proclaims the master's immortality!
So sit thee, marble Grief! this very day
How burns the art when long the hand is clay!

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: dawn_anderson_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. dawn_anderson_klh_128kb.mp3 )
