Re the rather extensive footnote... I had a bit of a discussion with several people about this. The consensus was that it would be best left up to the person reading the section whether they read the poem then the footnote, or just read the poem. But whether or not the footnote is included, the "outro" (opposite of "intro"), that is, the "end of poem, etc" should come right at the end of the recording. It's the "over and out" of our Librivox recordings.
I feel the explanation is important or the author would not have included it (being an author myself) plus anyone actually reading the poem would see it & the listener should not be deprived of the complete experience (IMO).

Just to be clear, since I'm a noob, & I want to learn best practices from the get go: I will read the last line of the poetry/say end of poem/say: 'explanation' or 'foot note' narrate the explanation/say 'this is the public domain (or whatever the actual wording is) & then end with my tag?

Or: I will read the last line of the poetry/say: 'explanation' or 'foot note' narrate the explanation/say end of poem & this is in the public domain (or whatever the actual wording is) & then end with my tag?

Sorry if I'm not being clear, Thanx for any help :)
To make it clear to the reader, you could read "end of poem" at the poem's end, then "footnote" followed by the explanation, then "End of Section 4" plus the public domain blurb plus your tag.

Thanks,
Chris
