Thank you, Craig and Sonia! Your contributions are now in the Magic Window, marked PL OK!

And a warm welcome to CGilliganBerryman! What a lovely voice! Congratulations on your very first Librivox recording! You now have a Reader page in the catalogue, here: https://librivox.org/reader/12697 It lists all projects you've been involved in, and I'm sure it will fill up quickly! :D
Your recording has all tech specs correct, but it's somewhat low in volume. A visual hint in Audacity for a nice volume is when the wave-form peaks just above the 0.5 mark:

Would you be able to amplify and re-upload? Amplify with about 20db. You may also need to noise-clean after amplifying, if the background noise gets too amplified. Let me know if you need more guidance since you're new, or when you're ready, go ahead and re-upload your file here with the same name. :thumbs:

I've always wanted to do a full reading of this brilliant (and frustrating!) poem, so I figured it was time! :lol:

That was really amusing! Thank you, Foon! I can't comment on pronunciation, I'm sure with all those different accents and dialects there's not one correct way to pronounce all those words! Certainly you did great! :D

Wow, thanks! I came across that poem in a school text on Gutenberg and was like, wow, why I haven't I heard of this girl before? Sent me down a Wikipedia/internet rabbit hole, reading about her!
