Hello Rapunzelina,

I have a puzzle for you this month, and I only hope it's not too confusing! None of Fanny Kemble's poetry is in the catalogue, so I'm uploading 3. The first two (in the order they're printed) have the same title. I have named the files with one dash for the first one (To-) and two dashes for the second (To--). I'm not sure if that's how you would like me to do it, but I'd be very happy to upload again with a renamed file. This may have come up before (Song, Sonnet, To- or similar popular titles, maybe?), but if it has I'm not sure what precedent might have been set. Does this make sense or have I just made it worse by trying to clarify?

To- by Fanny Kemble (1809-1893)

Hi, Erin! The dash is an acceptable character in filenames so they won't create any problems. Using one and two dashes for the two recordings will work just fine. There is no set standard.

Thanks, I'll listen soon and probably for the first time in my life some Fanny Kemble poetry. :D

Thanks for the instructions on how to make a shoe Rapunzelina :thumbs:

I'm ready to get to work.

One small error noted:

22:58 A small knife take, and trim the edge
From the heel, around the toe,
Down to the heel on the other side—
Our shoe begins to show.

You said one shoe begins to show

New Year, New Public Domain Poems!

Epitaph "For Myself" by Countee Cullen (1903 – 1946)
Text URL: https://archive.org/details/colorcul00cull/page/72/mode/2up
Duration: 0:29
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc212_epitaphformyself_mlo_128kb.mp3
I included "Epitaph" because that whole "Epitaphs" section is "For X" and they don't make as much sense without that context.

Near White by Countee Cullen (1903 – 1946)
Text URL: https://archive.org/details/colorcul00cull/page/10/mode/2up
Duration: 0:30
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc212_nearwhite_mlo_128kb.mp3
I initially uploaded this with the filename "halfwhite" by mistake, sorry. ^^;

Heaven's Paradox by Léonie Adams (1899-1988)

Thank you for the new additions, Mike! These are all PL OK! :thumbs:
Including "Epitaph" makes sense, and thank you for letting me know of the extra file, because I might have wondered what it was, come cataloguing time!

I have re-uploaded the recording! If convenient, could you spot check to make sure the upload with the fix went through alright? Thanks!!
