Canada and Other Poems, by Thomas Frederick Young ( - 1940)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/canada-and-other-poems-by-thomas-frederick-young/
From the author's preface:
I wished to do something for my country, and chose this method of doing it. The literature of this country is in its infancy. It must not always remain so, or the expectations we have in regard to making it a great nation, will never be fulfilled. Literature gives life to a nation, or rather it is the reflection of a nation's life and thought, in a mirror, which cheers, strengthens and ennobles those who look into it, and study what is there displayed. Literature must grow with our nation, and, when growing, it will aid the latter's progress in no small degree...I dedicate this little book of mine to the Canadian public. (Summary by T. F. Young)
Source text (please read only from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/6957
Note to readers - the table of contents in the book bears no relation to the order of the poems. The MW lists poems in the published order from the book, which may help you locate the correct spot.

If you cannot complete the recording within this time, please post in the thread to relinquish your claim or to ask the BC for an extension. If your recording is not completed by the deadline, your claim may be reassigned at the BC's discretion.

Hi Krista
Great to see another group poetry collection launched :thumbs:
I am already picking my first choices :wink:

Just a suggestion, but might it not be better to use the short intro and outro usually used for poetry :hmm:

Yes, I was hoping to get my MC's opinion on the wording for that. I do want to acknowledge the whole work's name somewhere, I think. Maybe just the first section? Can we do that?
EDIT: I made some changes to the intros. Please let me know if you have any thoughts on what I have there :)

I would put the full disclaimer on the Preface and then the short intro on the poems. That is usually acceptable.

OK, your MW is ready for you, Krista! And, yes, I approve of the intro for the preface, and the use of the shorter intro for the poems!

Good one, Krista! I will participate for sure! Did you notice I've launched a book by E. Pauline Johnson too? See you in their worlds!

Thanks Ann. My power is finally back on, so I'll get the MW updated once I catch up on my other projects/PLs.

The poem of thy choice,
And lend to the rhyme of the poet
The beauty of thy voice."
