Hi, Larry!

I'd like to claim section 1 ("To Dives"), if I could.

Matt
A great, but challenging piece.
All yours. Just check out the pronunciation for Dives.

These are both nicely read, Marcia. :)
You just to adjust the silences at the beginning and end.
At the beginning, nor more than one second, at the end, about 5 seconds.

9 - both are too long. Also, I think the long pause between the last words of the poem and "End of poem" could be shortened, but that is just a suggestion.
12 - ending silence is too short.

Just make the corrections, and upload them again and post here with the new file lengths.

They are PL OK.
I will say that I find your intro long for these shore poems. Your choice, but the effect, to me, is not the best.
Thank you for your nice reading. :)

Patient I am. It is on my list of things to do for learning how to be a dpl, not yet though.
