Claims entered!

I neglected to change the deadline from 2 months to one. I assume you all are OK with that. If not, we can work something out. ;)

Hi
This is such an interesting set of poems that I would really like to add sections 3,10&27 to my list, if you do not think that too many for an initial claim.
I will start recording them this week :)
