LibriVox Short Poetry Collection 173

This is an open collection of poems for the month of October 2017. When this month is over, another one will be started. Don't despair if the sections are all filled up! I will add more sections as needed. :)

  1. How to record a poem - Initial Guidelines:
    • All poems read must be in the public domain (that is, not copyrighted).
    • You do not have to "sign-up" to submit a poem; as long as it's clearly in the public domain, just start recording!
    • There is a limit of 3 poems per person per collection.
    • Poems can be as short as you like, but not longer than 74 minutes (so as to fit in an audio CD)
    • To see what's been recorded already, you can search the LibriVox Catalog - but remember that we welcome multiple versions! :)

  2. Find a public domain poem:
    The Poets' Corner is a great resource for public domain poetry. Other sources to try are Bartleby and Project Gutenberg.
    • You may use other websites if you like, but they need to state date of publication (or book edition) to verify public domain status.
    • Please read from the text you post! You may not read from another source, as the other source may not be public domain!
    • See this page for more info on copyrights. You can always ask me in this thread if you're not sure whether a poem is public domain.

  3. BEFORE recording:
    • If you are new to LibriVox, please check the Recording Notes thread first.
    • If this is your first time recording, you'll find this useful as well: The Newbie Guide to Recording.
    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz (44100 Hz)
    Channels: 1 (Mono)

  4. DURING recording:
    • At the beginning of the recording, leave no more than one second of silence and read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
    "[Poem title], by [author], read for LibriVox dot 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.
    • No recordings can be accepted without the LibriVox disclaimer.

  5. AFTER recording:
    ID3 tags: Not needed for this project. (You may put "Recorded by [your name]" in the comments section if you wish)

    Save file as:
    spc173_[poem's title in short form - no leading articles]_[your initials]_128kb.mp3
    Put file name all in lowercase, and the title all in one word (no leading articles - the, a, an, without the square brackets, please, and NO SPACES):
    e.g. spc173_roadnottaken_apc_128kb.mp3

    When submitting, please post in the thread, following this template:
    Quote:
    [Title of Poem] by [Author] (BIRTH-DEATH)
    Text URL:
    Duration:
    MP3 URL:


  6. Upload your completed recording:
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:
    http://librivox.org/login/uploader
    Image
    (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: Rapunzelina
    When your upload is complete, you will receive a link. Please click "Post Reply" at the top left of this thread, and post the link there.
    Also post the following information:
    • The title and author of the poem.
    • A link to the poem's text online (Poets' Corner, Bartleby, Gutenberg, etc.) so it can be verified as public domain. Please READ FROM the text you post!
    • The length of your recording in minutes & seconds.
    • If this is your first recording for LibriVox, please give us your name as you'd like it to appear in the catalog (that is, either your real name or some pseudonym). Also let us know if you have a personal URL you'd like to list (e.g. a personal blog).

PL Type: Special - Standard PL, plus checking all tech specs including ID tags, file names, volume, background noise, and plosives for new readers. For everyone, follow along with text and check to make sure any deviations from text don't affect rhyme, meter, or meaning.

Here's one in the spirit of Halloween:

Seein' Things by Eugene Field 1850-1895
Text Url:http://www.bartleby.com/104/6.html
Duration 2:33
MP3 Url: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc173_seeinthings_pdg_128kb.mp3

It's possible I was a little too sedate in my reading. But I tried to get into the spirit (so to speak).

Many thanks,

Philip

Thank you for your contribution, Craig! It's in the Magic Window! :thumbs:

And thank you Philip! Your contribution is also in the Magic Window marked PL OK!

Matt, I suspect "Measure" is the unedited version; it contains long pauses. The rest are PL OK! Thank you!

Rapunzelina-

Three carpe diem poems from me -

"Brevity of Life by Francis Quarles (1592-1644)"
Text URL: https://play.google.com/books/reader?id=TRIDAAAAQAAJ&printsec=frontcover&output=reader&hl=en&pg=GBS.PA45
Duration: 2:21
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc173_brevityoflife_ps_128kb.mp3

"Shortness of Life by Francis Quarles (1592-1644)"
Text URL: https://play.google.com/books/reader?id=f6VbAAAAQAAJ&printsec=frontcover&output=reader&hl=en&pg=GBS.PA188
Duration: 1:23
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc173_shortnessoflife_ps_128kb.mp3

I think I see a pattern here with Quarles poems. :roll:

"Mutability (The flower that smiles to-day) by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)"
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/4798/pg4798-images.html
Duration: 1:06
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc173_mutabilitytheflowerthatsmilestoday_ps_128kb.mp3

There are two poems by Shelley titled Mutability. This is the second, published by his wife in 1824 two years after his death. It is sometimes titled with the first line of the poem so I included that here to differentiate it from the earlier version which is already in the LV catalog.

my first one for this month. :) It's based on a romance by French writer Nerval. A very moody and romantic poem, I find. :9:

Sylvie et Aurélie by Andrew Lang (1844–1912)
Text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1060
Duration: 1:53 min.
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc173_sylvieetaurelie_ss_128kb.mp3

no I haven't yet, I only knew the author by name. I just checked and in fact Sylvie and Aurélie are the main characters of 2 different novels by this author. I found Sylvie (in English) and Aurélie (in German) in Gutenberg. Maybe I should read them for LV one day. So far we only have some poems by Nerval in the French poetry collection.
