The Complete Poems of Francis Ledwidge by Francis Ledwidge (1887 - 1917).


Francis Ledwidge, Irish poet, served in an Irish battalion ("The Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers") of the British Army during World War I. His first volume of poems was published while he served, in 1915; two more were published posthumously, and were followed by this collection of complete works in 1919. He and five comrades had been killed by an exploding shell during the third battle of Ypres (July 1917).

His poems reflect his love for his native rural countryside, tinged with loss arising from the war. From his frequent use of a blackbird motif, he was known as the "Poet of the Blackbird."

Of him, the poet John Drinkwater wrote: "His poetry exults me, while not so his death.... to those who know what poetry is, the untimely death of a man like Ledwidge is nothing but calamity." ( Nemo)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-complete-poems-of-francis-ledwidge-by-francis-ledwidge/
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/stream/completepoemsoff00ledwiala#page/n7/mode/2up
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!


    Magic Window:



    BC Admin Note – For the 1st three sections, say “[section number] of The Complete Poems of Francis Ledwidge, [section title] by Lord Dunsany, read for LibriVox.org by [your name]”.
    • Then read the section.
    • At the end, say: "End of section [number]. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    For the fourth and all subsequent sections, use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    DURING recording:
    • No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
    "[Poem title], by Francis Ledwidge , read for LibriVox.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.
    1. At the end of the book, say (in addition): 
    "End of The Complete Poems of Francis Ledwidge .”
    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  • Example filename poemsfrancisledwidge_##_ledwidge_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. poemsfrancisledwidge_001_ledwidge_128kb.mp3)
