Hi Rapunzelina,

Here is my next poem. I'm not certain I'm pronouncing the poets surname correct. Do you know?

Duration:00:51

Thank you, Elise! Always happy to see you in these collections, too :D
"How Is it" and "Good-Night" are now marked PL OK in the Magic Window, since the poems are also in gutenberg.org, but I haven't been able to find any publication information about "Nine Stages Towards Knowing". Do you perhaps have any information that I can cross-check?


Thank you, Ike! I don't know for sure about the name, I've heard it both ways. I would personally use the 2-syllable way, as the adjective. I think it's OK either way :D Marked PL OK in the Magic Window!

This is a bit out of the ordinary for the short poetry collection, but this poem is written as a dialogue. So Larry Wilson (silverquill) and I recorded it as one:

Thank you, Ky! Welcome to Librivox and the Poetry Collection! :clap: Wonderful recordings and thank you for offering them to the collection! They are marked PL OK in the Magic Window. I made a note to myself to fix the filename at cataloguing; it's missing the spc in the beginning.
