Thanks, Lynda. Just one thing to fix in Section 28 at 2:15, please: in the Gutenberg text it says, and you read, "With nought hut thee to cherish and admire." It sounded odd so I checked a scan of the book and 'hut' should be 'but'.

All the rest, PL OK.

Thanks, Lynda.

12:
40 secs "Sinewy though she be; love-lorn
Convolvuluses cease to creep."

I hear 'through' instead of 'though'. Also, would you mind re-reading both lines because I don't think I would guess what 'convolvuluses' was. Forvo has a suggested pronunciation: https://forvo.com/search/convolvulus/en/

I wouldn't normally ask for re-reads for pronunciation but seeing as I am asking for another edit in the same poem, I hope you don't mind.

Also, last word of the poem: I hear "grasp" instead of "gasp".


14:
Could you please re-read this line?
"Heart's dear demesne, dear Daintiness"
I'm asking mainly for 'daintiness', which I don't quite hear from the reading. However, if you could re-do the whole line that would be good because I looked up the pronunciation of 'demesne' (never heard that word before) and apparently it is like 'domain'.


3,6,13,28 are PL OK.
