Lovely, thank you. Here's another poem:

It's already been recorded, but I liked the rhythm.

Hello Ilaria! Welcome to the Poetry Collection! What a sweet voice!
I am afraid this particular poem is not in the public domain, being published after 1924 (in 1935). But correct me if I'm wrong.
Would you like to choose something else?

Thank you Peter and Welcome to the Poetry Collection! :clap: I am sorry I neglected to reply sooner. :oops:
All is great with your recordings! Tech specs correct, sound nice and clear, volume within desired range (towards the upper limit, so take care not to go any higher). And deep, meaningful reading; makes the poems stand out! Thank you, Peter!
