Welcome to Librivox and to the Poetry Collection, Caleb! Thank you for contributing! A sweet choice of a poem, very nicely read :9:

Since this is your first recording, I have also checked your tech specs, and have a fix to suggest. Do you use Audacity? The bitrate is wrongly set, so if you are in Audacity, you can fix that when you go to export as mp3. Open your recording in Audacity, and go to Export. In the Export window, check the options at the bottom, and choose "Constant" for Bit Rate Mode, then choose "128kbps" for Quality. That's it! Then click Save to export and Audacity should save your settings for all future exports. By the way, when naming the file, you can skip the [], they are just placeholders in the file-naming format. Then upload your new file and post here, and I'll check again :D

And here's your Reader Page in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/reader/14967 which you can also access through your name-link in the magic Window. It lists all projects you read for, so it might look a bit empty now, but I hope you enjoy recording, and gradually fill it up!
It can also help you keep track of your sections in ongoing projects, under the "Reader section details" link.

Thank you, Richard! That was very well recited! It would have been a pity to go to waste; I'm guessing you weren't able to post it in the Weekly Poetry in time. I'm glad we can find a place for it here :D

Hi Chad! Thank you for your recordings! :thumbs: You changed locations! I hope you like the Beatles :mrgreen:
Thank you, Craig! Entering the new author in our database, I saw that he died so young, and the poem took a deeper meaning!

That is correct. I was late for the other board but I am glad that it will have a home here. :)

Thanks,
