Thank you, Maria! Yes, some of her poems bring an unexpected sadness.

Finally, a poem that I'm sure has been recorded many times, but is a poem, more than any other that first germinated a love for poetry in me in my youth.

Sonnet 48 of Sonnets from the Portuguese by Elizabeth Barrett Browning 1806 –1861

I think this is Sonnet 43 :?: in case it makes a difference and you'd like to change it. Otherwise, I'll mark it PL OK.
O thou ever diligent one! Indeed it is 43. So, with chagrin, here is the corrected recording with new file name.

a shorty, but a bit more exotic:

"A serenade to his sleeping mistress" by Aly Ben Abd Algady of Cordova (????-????) (couldn't find anything about this guy either except the bit that the translator wrote about him above the poem, maybe you want to insert that as blurb ?), translated from the Arabic by J. D. Carlyle (1758-1804) / wiki to the translator is probably not needed, but here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Dacre_Carlyle

Here are my three ladies for this month.

Sulpicia, an ancient Roman

Anne Bradstreet, first Puritan poet in American literature

Phillis Wheatley, sold into slavery around the age of 8 and shipped to the US

Let me know if you want any of the titles changed as some were really long and one was somewhat nonexistent.

Thank you, M! Very touching poetry reading!

One PL note about the intros missing the "read for LibriVox dot org by [your name]", or just "read for LibriVox dot org" if you would rather not use a name.

About Sulpicia's poem, this particular English translation is not in the public domain (not published before 1925).
I have found another one if you'd like to read this one :?: (XI Epistle): https://archive.org/details/poemsofcatullu00catu/page/166/mode/2up
Thank you!

I checked on the site to see if they've both been recorded. Shocked that they weren't, because they're very nice poems.
