Hello,

Please note, the file has been uploaded twice. In the first file upload for this poem
I forgot to put the word "old"in the file name

So, please disregard the first upload.

The file below is the correct file uploaded:

I was wondering if there are any thoughts on reading "important" or "classic" poems for these collections vs. ditties, doggerel, bits of humor, and other throwaway pieces often used as filler in the various old magazines I like to dig through. Some of these really speak to me but it's more for humor or cleverness (or god forbid even puns) or something else than the fine quality of the verse.

For example, I came across a poem today in an 1830s issue of the "Southern Literary Messenger" by "E.A.S." called "Lines Written on being accused of coldness of character and manners by some friends—1830" and OMG y'all, it reads like an emo teen's poem from Tumblr, just in flowery 19th century language. I'm really tempted to read it for one of the poetry collections!

I also have in my "stash" a horror poem from Astounding or Amazing Stories (one of the confirmed PD editions) and a poem addressed to "the spider in adverse possession of a corner of my office" -- the latter is in a "light reading" magazine for lawyers and concludes with the narrator deciding that if flies can be considered "clients" of the spider, and the spider's goal is to bleed them dry, then perhaps the lawyer and the spider make good office mates after all.....

Too bad it's decades til Ogden Nash comes into public domain, I would be all over that stuff!

Colleen, bringing the lowbrow to the poem party...

Hello, Mari and Craig! I've finally got to enjoy your recordings! :9: Thank you so much for your contributions! MW is updated.

I've changed the text source for "Reducers and Oxidisers" to https://archive.org/details/chemicaljinglesf00worm/page/10 for easier access. For this particular book, Hathitrust gave me limited access (search only) due to copyright restrictions, probably because I'm outside the US. That is why I changed the source link. I hope that's OK.

Well, later than usual this month, but these are among my first recording from our new place.

There is a pair of poems from the Russian legend of Baboushka, or Babushka, each with one of the variant spellings, and one on a sadder Christmas note.
