The Quarrel by Madison Cawein (1865 - 1914).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-quarrel-by-madison-cawein/
This LIbriVox Weekly Poem is taken from The Poems of Madison Cawein, Volume II, New World Idylls and Poems of Love (1901) ( David Lawrence)
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:

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!
The Quarrel by Madison Cawein, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:

An instant only and her eyes
Flashed lightning like the angry skies;

And o’er her forehead, curving down,
Fell dark the shadow of a frown;

Then backward, deep and stormy fair,
She tossed the tempest of her hair;

Then of her lips’ full rose disdain
Made a pink-folded bud again;

Then quicker than all utterance,
All changed: and at a word, a glance,

Her anger rained its tears, then passed;
And she was in my arms at last;

The austere woman, doubly dear,
And lovelier for each falling tear:

But why we quarreled, how it grew,
I can not tell, I never knew:

Perhaps ’t was Love; he, who, with tears,
Would show how fair a face appears;

As, after storm, the sky ’s more blue,
A wildflower ’s fairer for the dew.

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.
