Just a thought...
Do we ever do songs for these collections?
I can think of at least a few dreamy ones... :9:
Do you sing? Or are you just thinking of reciting the lyrics? In most cases, don't songs repeat the same lyrics over and over? I really don't know how interesting that would be. But, I'm open to seeing what you have in mind.
I thought someone(s) could sing, a cappella...

People have sung on LV. I've run across it as a short segment within a text, not as a standalone story, but there is a whole lot more in this collection than I've run across. Give it a shot.

Could I read these two? I`ve checked many times and I`m very sure that they're in the public domain and not on Librivox yet but could someone else confirm this? Thank you.

Project Gutenberg is the first place to look.
The source text has to be in the public domain, which may not be the case even if the poem is. Each file in the project is linked to its source text. Good PD sources for poetry are The Poets' Corner https://www.theotherpages.org/poems/index.html and Bartleby's https://www.bartleby.com/verse/
Project Gutenberg is the ideal source. The Complete Poems of Paul Laurence Dunbar is on Gutenberg here: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/18338
The poem Dreams and several others with "dream" in the title are in it.
Gutenberg also has Poems by Christina Georgina Rossetti http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/19188
Monna Innominata is in this book.
Please use these sources.

Thank you Amy. I didn't know how to answer that, but I've copied and saved it so now I know. You are an ideal educator!:D

Sarah,
The source texts need to be the Gutenberg ones. Does that make sense?

Thank you, Daniel. I look forward to listening. I may have to hold these over to the next Dreams Collection, which will be launched as soon as this is completed.

PL Notes Dreams by Dunbar

8.5 seconds thru 19.5 seconds - Please delete the long disclaimer and the repeated title. Poems use the short disclaimer, which is included at the end.
Also, please amplify your intro by +6 (in Audacity, Effect/Amplify/+6dB). It is barely audible.
Also, please re-name your file to delete "_laurence-" (use only dunbar for the author's name)
Upload when completed and post to this forum.

Amy, I will use the gutenberg text in the meta data.

I'm trying to find out if H.P. Lovecraft's "The Strange High House in the Mist" is or isn't public domain in the US? I'd like to read it for this next dream collection if that's possible. Can you steer me in a reliable direction?
Thanks.
