Rapunzelina,

Here is my selection for November - 2 women. (And, I remembered to put in the "read for LibriVox...)


Days of Melancholy by Jamie Harris Coleman (1893-?) --I couldn't find any information on her, sorry.

Of course, even though I remembered the statement for the recording, I uploaded them the first time with knotyouraveragejo. Can you delete those files.

Thanks,

M

Thank you, Craig, Sophie, smccaroni (Welcome to the Poetry Collection!), Bruce, Erin, M, and Anamika!

I got a melancholic vibe from most of these poems! I bet it's the November rain :D


Magic Window is updated with PL OKs, with just a couple of technical PL notes for Sophie:

Thank you for yet another beautiful poem! :clap: Here are my notes to your previous recording in case you missed them: viewtopic.php?p=1804687#p1804687 as the issues are the same in this recording, too (bit rate and volume). So if you could, please export again with the correct bitrate. The volume is a bit better but still quieter than desired. You can amplify by 5 dB now.

I hope I have posted the details in the right way and that the recording settings and sound are okay. This is my first actual recording, I'd like my name to be put in as Zach Hoyt. Thank you very much for putting the collection together.
