What The Pine Trees Said by Edith M. Thomas, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
I heard the swaying pine trees speak,
As I went down the glen:
“Next year,” said one, “the wind shall seek,
But find me not again!”

“I shall go forth upon the seas,
A mast, or steering-beam;
On me shall breathe the tropic breeze,
Above, strange stars shall gleam.”

“And I—the ax shall cleave my grain,
And many times divide;
From my dear brood I’ll shed the rain,
And roof their ingleside.”

Then up and spake a slender shaft,
That like an arrow grew;
“No breeze my leafless stem shall waft,
No ax my trunk shall hew—

But though a single hour is mine,
How happy shall I be!
Young hearts shall leap, young eyes shall shine
To greet their Christmas tree!”

At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Here's mine at 1:24

Actually, I added an "s" on "tree" in the title, to match the original - but with or without sounds much the same to me.

Thanks,
Bruce.
