Thank you, Dale (Interesting that this usually goes by the titled "In Time of Pestilence, 1593", but it happens sometimes with poems to have more than one titles.), Peter, and Mike! :9: PL OK and in the MW :thumbs:

I love this for it's sarcasm, humour and disrespect. His mistress was reputed to be a prostitute at this time and she was ethnic (black African?). But in the end he really did love her, and that is extremely touching.

Thank you, Kristine! :9: Now in the Magic Window marked PL OK!

I have a couple of notes for future reference. One is about the volume which feels a bit too low, so take care not to go any lower, or even get some more volume if possible, though then there's a risk of getting too much :mrgreen: So, just a little bit more.
The other is about filenames; they should end _128kb.mp3 Yours are missing the kb part, but no worries for this one, because I can change it. But I'm mentioning it because it is very easy to miss.
