Morn by Helen Hunt Jackson (1830 - 1885) .

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/morn-by-helen-hunt-jackson/
Helen Hunt Jackson (pen name, H.H.) was an American poet and writer who became an activist on behalf of improved treatment of Native Americans by the United States government. This poem about waking up in the morning is from the collection Sonnets and Lyrics (1886). ( Wikipedia )
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
Morn by Helen Hunt Jackson, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
IN what a strange bewilderment do we
Awake each morn from out the brief night's sleep.
Our struggling consciousness doth grope and creep
Its slow way back, as if it could not free
Itself from bonds unseen. Then Memory,
Like sudden light, outflashes from its deep
The joy or grief which it had last to keep
For us; and by the joy or grief we see
The new day dawneth like the yesterday;
We are unchanged; our life the same we knew
Before. I wonder if this is the way
We wake from death's short sleep, to struggle through
A brief bewilderment, and in dismay
Behold our life unto our old life true.


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

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:

Welcome to LibriVox Emily :D good first reading. :thumbs:
*You may want to reposition your mic in order to prevent 'plosives - breath noises from certain sounds, 'b', 'f', for example. Some experimentation will solve this. :wink:
