I had to briefly leave the zoom chat, and now I can't get back in. :(

Sorry. We closed the meeting at about 1:11 pm my time. Now you must record lots and lots.

Oh. you let me back in after a while. :D When I posted here, I thought maybe I had forfeited my access by leaving once. I had experimented with the zoom firefox extension -- which worked, but it only ever showed me those who were currently talking, and not all participants at once, so I downloaded and installed zoom after all (new laptop with very little software as yet).

In Kevin's talk about poetry, (Thank you, Kevin) he mentioned women aren't well represented. I assume he meant in LibriVox recordings. Below is a Wikipedia link to female poets, worldwide. Perhaps some of these who wrote pre-1923 (I think that's the copyright safe date) have poems available online that could be recorded for LibriVox. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_female_poets

I haven't really noticed that in the monthly poetry collection, but since October is breast cancer awareness month, I will dedicate next month's collection to female poets (as an optional choice by the contributors).

Thanks for the idea and for the link, Mary!
Come read female poets for October's Poetry Collection

That's quite a mine field for poetry, Mary! Great find!

Yep. https://youtu.be/N0ly32jlvEw

please ignore my mindless singing at the start. I heard music all the time in my head and sometimes it just slips out.

“I heard music all the time in my head and sometimes it just slips out.
Suddenly you’re channeling the Easybeats, Phil.

“And the music goes 'round my head
And I can't hear a thing you said
And my life echoes through my brain
It's so comical I'm insane.”



Cheers,
Chris

They seem to have missed Violet Nicolson / Laurence Hope (1865-1904) off that wikipedia list!

One of my favourites.

Thanks for catching that, Peter. I did a Wikipedia edit and added her. I was relatively certain that as Wikipedia has a page on her, they would accept her into the female poets page.

Btw, if you enter weekly poem librivox into a search engine, you get lots of results:

Thanks for adding Laurence Hope, Mary. We don't want to see her forgotten.
