Welcome to Librivox and to the poetry collection! Congrats on your first Librivox recording :D is there a specific name you'd like to be credited by, in the catalogue?

There is one addition needed in the recording, if you could do it by tomorrow, or let me know if you need more time, we could delay cataloguing by a day or two if needed, seeing as I took a day or two to proof- listen :mrgreen:
The recording needs a "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain" at the end, and then 5 seconds of silence. Thank you so much for contributing! Your reading is lovely! :9:

Rapunzelina -

I haven't forgotten Lawrence. I searched high and low on the internet, but only found Work in collections still under copyright. I sent a note to WA, but have heard nothing from them. I haven't given up yet, but the month is coming to a close and offer this as a replacement -

The Death of the Old Year by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)
Text URL: Https://www.gutenberg.org/files/8601/8601-h/8601-h.htm#section53
Duration: 2:46
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc199_deathoftheoldyear_ps_128kb.mp3

I'll submit Lawrence again if I'm successful in tracking him down.
Thank you Fritz! This is pl ok! And very suitable for the day! I will update the mw some time before cataloguing. :thumbs:

If I record The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, do I have to read the Italian stanza at the beginning as well? I will give it my best shot but it will probably not sound very good.

You can omit it if you choose to . It will be like reading an extract, which is allowed. :thumbs:

Many apologies - got the timing wrong for My Last Duchess. It should be 1.11.84 and not 3.44 as written in previous post.

Thanks

Oh goodness; this was my first ever recording and I was worried I forgot something! I will add that to the recording! If it can't post I completely understand, and will try again next time!
