I can BC the poem To My Son, Aged Three Years and Five Months to be this fortnight’s poem, if you don’t have anything else planned.
That would be great Bookworm, please set up the project, I can look at it later this evening. We have a grandchild staying with us so LV is very restricted at the moment. :wink:
Have you been BC before?

Erm, no, but I took the BC readiness quiz and could answer all the questions. Now I want to see if I can put it in practice(and this weekly/fortnightly thing is just great.)🤗

Welcome!

This is a suggestion thread, not a place to submit recordings. "There will come soft rains" was the weekly poem back in 2010. :) The current one is here: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=81658

If you want to salvage this recording, you could submit it to the Short Poetry Collection. The current one (to the end of the month, so hurry!) is here: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=81152 Follow the instructions in the first post.

(Note that your file name is incorrect. If/when you submit files, please name them according to the naming scheme in the first post of the project thread.) ;)

The one that started them all: Self-Help, by Samuel Smiles

I would like to BC this poem for a weekly poetry project:

The Growth of Love
By Robert Bridges

Sonnet 38


An idle June day on the sunny Thames,
Floating or rowing as our fancy led,
Now in the high beams basking as we sped,
Now in green shade gliding by mirror'd stems;
By lock and weir and isle, and many a spot
Of memoried pleasure, glad with strength and skill,
Friendship, good wine, and mirth, that serve not ill
The heavenly Muse, tho' she requite them not:

I would have life—thou saidst—all as this day,
Simple enjoyment calm in its excess,
With not a grief to cloud, and not a ray
Of passion overhot my peace to oppress;
With no ambition to reproach delay,
Nor rapture to disturb its happiness.
