LibriVox Short Poetry Collection 179

This project is complete and all audiofiles can be found in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/short-poetry-collection-179-by-various/

This is an open collection of poems for the month of April 2018. When this month is over, another one will be started. Don't despair if the sections are all filled up! I will add more sections as needed. :)
  1. How to record a poem - Initial Guidelines:
    • All poems read must be in the public domain (that is, not copyrighted).
    • You do not have to "sign-up" to submit a poem; as long as it's clearly in the public domain, just start recording!
    • There is a limit of 3 poems per person per collection.
    • Poems can be as short as you like, but not longer than 74 minutes (so as to fit in an audio CD)
    • To see what's been recorded already, you can search the LibriVox Catalog - but remember that we welcome multiple versions! :)
  2. Find a public domain poem:
    The Poets' Corner is a great resource for public domain poetry. Other sources to try are Bartleby and Project Gutenberg.
    • You may use other websites if you like, but they need to state date of publication (or book edition) to verify public domain status.
    • Please read from the text you post! You may not read from another source, as the other source may not be public domain!
    • See this page for more info on copyrights. You can always ask me in this thread if you're not sure whether a poem is public domain.
  3. BEFORE recording:
    • If you are new to LibriVox, please check the Recording Notes thread first.
    • If this is your first time recording, you'll find this useful as well: The Newbie Guide to Recording.
    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz (44100 Hz)
    Channels: 1 (Mono)
  4. DURING recording:
    • At the beginning of the recording, leave no more than one second of silence and read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
    "[Poem title], by [author], read for LibriVox dot org by [your name]" or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
    • Then read the poem.
    • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    • No recordings can be accepted without the LibriVox disclaimer.
  5. AFTER recording:
    ID3 tags: Not needed for this project. (You may put "Recorded by [your name]" in the comments section if you wish)

    Save file as:
    spc179_[poem's title in short form - no leading articles]_[your initials]_128kb.mp3
    Put file name all in lowercase, and the title all in one word (no leading articles - the, a, an, without the square brackets, please, and NO SPACES):
    e.g. spc179_roadnottaken_apc_128kb.mp3

    When submitting, please post in the thread, following this template:
    [Title of Poem] by [Author] (BIRTH-DEATH)
    Text URL:
    Duration:
    MP3 URL:
  6. Upload your completed recording:
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:
    http://librivox.org/login/uploader
    Image
    (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: Rapunzelina
    When your upload is complete, you will receive a link. Please click "Post Reply" at the top left of this thread, and post the link there.
    Also post the following information:
    • The title and author of the poem.
    • A link to the poem's text online (Poets' Corner, Bartleby, Gutenberg, etc.) so it can be verified as public domain. Please READ FROM the text you post!
    • The length of your recording in minutes & seconds.
    • If this is your first recording for LibriVox, please give us your name as you'd like it to appear in the catalog (that is, either your real name or some pseudonym). Also let us know if you have a personal URL you'd like to list (e.g. a personal blog).
PL Type: Special - Standard PL, plus checking all tech specs including ID tags, file names, volume, background noise, and plosives for new readers. For everyone, follow along with text and check to make sure any deviations from text don't affect rhyme, meter, or meaning.

The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense-desires,
Is not born again into this world.’

I think the 5 seconds are there! By the way, the poem is called The night has a Thousand Eyes.

my first for April:

A Flower from Borrow's Grave by E. Peake (????-????) - I couldn't find more details about this guy, he only was mentioned in one sentence in the preface of the book I took the poem from: "The Committee are indebted to numerous Borrovians [...] and Mr. E. Peake for his Ode to the Flower".

my second for this month. I just came back from a stroll outside in the sun and it was really hot. So here is a light-hearted spring poem, fitting my mood. :)

"The Fairy Ball" by R.F. (????-????) - not sure whether I should have said "Anonymous" or "Unknown" instead of the initials, but since they were given, I used those

I found information here https://archive.org/details/vitalizingteachi00cart that this R.F. is Rose Fyleman, and then I google that and found more hits, like: https://archive.org/details/fairyflute00fyleuoft so I will credit this author in our database. No need to change anything in the recording, though ;)

great find !!! Well I don't mind changing the intro, if you prefer. But I guess, since she was credited R.F. I can say it that way, and if you credit her real name in the database, then that's ok. But if we take that other archive book as link, then it's better I say her real name. :?

Thanks

Yes, everything is fine! It's like when a work is written under a pseudonym, but we have the real name as main name in our author database.
