The World's Best Poetry, Volume 5: Nature (Part 2) by Various ( - ).

This project is now complete and can be found in our catalog here: https://librivox.org/the-worlds-best-poetry-vol-5-nature-part-2/
The fifth of ten volumes of poetry edited by Canadian poet laureate Bliss Carman (1861-1929). This collection, the second of two parts, includes a range of poems dealing with the natural world, covering subjects such as trees; flowers; plants; birds; insects; mammals; and the sea. ( Tomas Peter)
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/wbppoemsofnature0bliss

To the MC: please give Anthony (afutterer) access as DPL, and Sonia (Kitty) joint-access.

Sonia, Leanne Yau, Craig Franklin, Jason in Panama, and myself will be returning from Part 1, delving into the wondrous world of plants, animals, and the sea! :9:

Sonia has already sent out a PM, but since it doesn't hurt to repeat the important details:

• There are 136 solo poems, so one reader gets to do 28 poems and the others will have to do 27.

• There are 21 DRs with 51 roles, so one reader will do 11 roles and the others 10.

Claiming is as before. Those who want particular poems will make a wishlist of 28/27 poems. Those who don't care will be at Sonia's mercy. :lol: For DRs, Google Docs will appear when the MW is set up, and there'll be a sign-up document as always for claims.

Excited to be here! I haven't looked through all the poems yet, but I saw Under the Greenwood Tree by Shakespeare was one of them. I happen to know how to sing this as a song (I did so once for a singing contest), so I was hoping I could claim this one preemptively xD

I have just roamed through all the poems available and made my lists :) I found 26 poems that I really would love to read, so if I can get all these (if Leanne and Tomas do not fight me over them), I need only one or two more to meet my share of 27/28.

I will wait for the others to finish their lists though, so as not to influence anybody :mrgreen:

I would quite like to do 'Beth Gellert' and 'Helvellyn' if possible. No problem if someone else has picked them.

Beth Gellert will be a DR, but you can put yourself up as the main reader once the google doc sheet is ready :)

I will take Sonia's assignments for the poems, including the remaining Shakespeare if it is still available. For DRs I will go through and make claims and if I don't claim enough, then I will have them assigned also.

I see I can have a lot of fun assigning poems again 8-)

Yes I marked you down for the second Shakespeare already. Then Leanne can have her Shakespeare song. Always great to have a few songs in there :9:

Thank you, MaryAnn! :)

I'll populate the MW tonight, but the Google Docs for the DRs may have to wait until tomorrow. I'll note the DRs in the meantime.

OK everyone, the MW is now ready. Anything with 'Google Doc forthcoming' next to it will be a DR and cannot be claimed as a solo. I also assigned requests from Leanne, Jason and Craig.

Claiming can now begin in earnest. :) I'll post my wishlist soon. :mrgreen:

we're actually not overlapping too much, Leanne, only 4 poems are the same. Here is my most-wanted list.

I have 26 poems on it, and I plan on claiming 27. Already one is overlapping with Craig's only wish "Helvellyn". As it is the only poem he really wished for, I will give that one to him. No problem. :)

4 are overlapping with Leanne:

To the Cuckoo by William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
The English Robin by Harrison Weir (1824–1906)
“A wet sheet and a flowing sea” by Allan Cunningham (1784–1842)
The White Squall by Bryan Waller Procter (Barry Cornwall) (1787–1874)

Of those 4 my personal preference would go to the two "sea" poems. So if you don't mind leaving me those, you can have the "bird" poems. That would actually make your list of 27 complete, unless you wish to do 28.

So of those 26 I will give 1 to Craig and 2 to Leanne, that means I have a list of 23 poems, so I will choose 4 from my B-list, taking care not to take any of Leanne's A-List.

So unless Tomas is fighting us over some poems, we can have our wish-lists :9:

Here is my A-List:

11 Among the Redwoods by Edward Rowland Sill (1841–1887)
21 Trailing Arbutus by Rose Terry Cooke (1827–1892)
26 A September Violet by Robert Underwood Johnson (1853–1937)
28 The Death of the Flowers by William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)
29 Sunrise: A Hymn of the Marshes by Sidney Lanier (1842–1881)
31 The Mountain Fern by Arthur Gerald Geoghegan (1810–1889)
36 The Daisy by Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1340–1400)
44 “’T is the last rose of summer” by Thomas Moore (1779–1852)
50 To the Cuckoo by John Logan (1748–1788)
51 To the Cuckoo by William Wordsworth (1770–1850) Leanne's Choice
57 The Little Beach Bird by Richard Henry Dana, Sr. (1787–1879)
61 The Nightingale’s Song by Richard Crashaw (c. 1613–1649)
71 The Owl by Bryan Waller Procter (Barry Cornwall) (1787–1874)
75 The English Robin by Harrison Weir (1824–1906) Leanne's Choice
90 A More Ancient Mariner by Bliss Carman (1861–1929)
91 To a Louse by Robert Burns (1759–1796)
98 The Ox by Giosuè Carducci (1835–1907)
102 Helvellyn by Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832) Craig's Choice
108 The Sea by Lord Byron (1788–1824)
112 The Sea by Bryan Waller Procter (Barry Cornwall) (1787–1874)
115 The Treasures of the Deep by Felicia Dorothea Hemans (1793–1835)

130 Tom Bowling by Charles Dibdin (1745–1814)
132 The White Squall by Bryan Waller Procter (Barry Cornwall) (1787–1874) Leanne's Choice
140 The Shipwreck by William Falconer (1732–1769)
