Rohan, here are your PL notes:
0:12: You said, "let me first kiss away that tear" instead of "first let me kiss away that tear."
0:30: There is a repeat of "And unsoiled by sin".
0:43: "Swings" was said for "wings".
1:57:You said "Touched by the beauteous tints of dawning life", which should be "Touched with the beauteous tints of dawning life".
2:25: You said, "with many a lamb-like little frisk",but the word "little" shouldn't be in there.
2:42-2:43: You said "As fresh as the morn and as brilliant as its star" which should be "Fresh as the morn and brilliant as its star."
2:49: you said "behold as the hawk" instead of "bold as the hawk".
Asid from that, it was good. Please provide the updates soon.

This was a very good reading, except for one small detail:
1:10: "playful" was said for "playfellow."
Other than that, it was all right. Please provide this edit soon.

Thank you.

Here is the edited file, and I cleaned up the "pulling the tail" line.

Hi aradlaw, great reading! There was just one thing:
3:00 You forgot to put in the line "Bold as the hawk, yet gentle as the dove" other than that, it was excellent. :mrgreen:
