[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal URL.]
Then read the poem:

(WITH APOLOGIES TO ARIEL)

Five inches deep Sir Goldfish lies,
Here last September was he laid,
Poppies these that were his eyes,
Of fish-bones were these bluebells made.
His fins of gold that to and fro
Waved and waved so long ago,
Still as petals wave and wave
To and fro above his grave.
Hearken too! for so his knell
Tolls all day each tiny bell.


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: goldfish_legallienne_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3

Thank you Gini, good reading, but there is a spelling error in the filename, best to copy/paste the sample in the opening instructions. :wink:
- you have quite a background hum in this reading that wasn't there is your last submission to another project. Is your recording setup changes in some way?

Hi,

I'm not sure where the background hum came from. I've tried to remove it by using noise reduction. Here is the new link:
