Could I please have 35, 46 and 57 as well? She's a very fun poet to read aloud :D

Section 4 PL notes: What a beautiful poem!
0:03 Incorrect disclaimer (should be "Platonic, by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, read for LibriVox.org")
0:48 Repeat ("Who would have said . . . what would you have said")
Constant buzzing in background - noise reduction recommended

Section 7 PL notes:
0:04 Incorrect disclaimer (should be "Platonic, by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, read for LibriVox.org")
0:08 Repeat ("Well, Mabel, ’tis over and ended—The ball I wrote was to be; And oh! it was perfectly splendid—If you could have been here to see." x2)
Constant buzzing in background - noise reduction recommended

Section 14 PL notes:
0:04 Incorrect disclaimer (should be "Platonic, by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, read for LibriVox.org")
Constant buzzing in background - noise reduction recommended

Section 17 PL notes:
0:03 Incorrect disclaimer (should be "Platonic, by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, read for LibriVox.org")
01:59 5 full seconds of silence needed at end, currently only 4
Constant buzzing in background - noise reduction recommended

Sections 25, 29, 44, 48, and 52 are PL OK.

Updated for spot PL, and some new ones as well. I've left the disclaimer as is because the instructions say "[Poem title], by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, so by my interpretation this is a suitable variation. If you want it to be word perfect I can re-record the disclaimer.
