And a welcome to you, too, Nathan! Here is your Reader Page: https://librivox.org/reader/15752 (calluna above got the palindrome :mrgreen: )
Thank you for your recordings, which are now marked PL OK in the Magic Window.

Thank you both for adding poetic variety in the collection!

Ah, the 'apc' in the example filename is supposedly the reader's initials, so for you maybe 'ngm'? Let me know and I'll fix the filenames directly in the server. Thanks!

Hi again,

Yes 'ngm' would work fine for the filenames. Thanks a bunch, I hadn't realised.

thnak you for your kind words

also, in the catalogue would it be possible to mention what the poems are based on?

No, unfortunately, it is not very practical to do so in this collection.

Rapunzelina,

Here are my entries for the February collection. (I got irritated by the chapter is a children's book I just read where all the characters were male so I decided to select only female poets this month.)

Truth by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper (1825-1911)
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/60003/60003-h/60003-h.htm#page_26
Duration: 2:18
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc213_truth_mlm_128kb.mp3


Which Are You? by Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850-1919)
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/6667/6667-h/6667-h.htm#page106
Duration: 1:29
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc213_whichareyou_mlm_128kb.mp3


The Rag Bag by Nathalia Crane (1913-1998)
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/62146/62146-h/62146-h.htm#Page_39
Duration: 1:10
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc213_ragbag_mlm_128kb.mp3

Please let me know of any issues. (I love the age of the last poet.)

Thanks,

M

Three from me -

At Midnight by George Logan Moore (BIRTH-DEATH)

Longing for Spring by George Logan Moore (BIRTH-DEATH)

Duration: 2:15

Seaward by George Logan Moore (BIRTH-DEATH)

Duration: 2:05
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc213_seaward_ps_128kb.mp3

I believe this author is new to the catalog. There is a George Moore already listed, but it is George A. Moore rather than George Logan Moore. I think they were both Irish and were contemporaries in the late 19th century. I was not able to find birth/death dates for GLM, only the brief bibliographical sketch here:

Thank you, M! All PL OK and wonderfully read.

It could be worse; female characters would be portrayed weak and inferior...

Dear Rapunzelina,

Thank you for your encouraging words about my first reading. I browsed through the source you provided for it, at Project Gutenberg, and chose the other two poems from there:

'Black and White' by Harold Henry Abbott (1891-1976)
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/51488/51488-h/51488-h.htm
Duration:01m29s
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc213_blackandwhite_rmf_128kb.mp3

'Sheep' by William Henry Davies (1871-1940)
Test URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/51488/51488-h/51488-h.htm
Duration: 02m22s
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc213_sheep_rmf_128kb.mp3

Warm Regards,
Rachel

Amazing, Rachel! Thank you! :clap:

Would you check the "Sheep" poem, I think it's repeated in the recording. It's a funny poem :D
'Black and White' is PL OK.
