Rapunzelina,

In anticipation of construction work to be done around my apartment over the next few weeks, I'm getting my recording done early this month, hence:

Hello!

I have two more contributions for this collection:

Author: Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)

URL to text: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/38594/38594-h/38594-h.htm#Her_mouth

Title: Her Mouth & Death

https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc196_death_cjph_128kb.mp3 Time: 00:31

Is the copyright status of these poems okay in the UK?

Many thanks,
Chad

I'd like to withdraw my previous submission and replace it with this trilogy where the order matters.

"America" by Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850-1919)
Text URL: https://archive.org/details/worldvoices00wilcgoog/page/n59
Duration: 2:11

"America" by Bertrand Shadwell (???? - ????)

Duration: 1:09

"America" by James Monroe Whitfield (1822-1871)
Text URL: https://archive.org/details/americaotherpoem00whit/page/n11
Duration: 7:20
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc196_america_whitfield_mlo_128kb.mp3

The last one has two small mistakes, but the meaning is the same. At 0:53, I said "hills" instead of "hill" and, at 5:23, I said "a sad and fervent" instead of "a sad, a fervent" prayer."
Mike
