Both PL OK
There is a click at the end of 14, but I"ll leave that up to you as it is not critical.

Pronunciation questions can start here in the thread, but you can also post in the Need Help forum, especially if it happens to involve languages other than English. :) Dictionary.com is my first go to source of pronunciations of words that I am not sure about. There is usually audio as well as phonetic pronunciations. For other languages, I use Forvo or will Google something if not in either of the above.

Yes, please read the text exactly as published with C.C.M. at the end of each poem.

Off to update your catalog name. :)
Question on pronunciation. I'm about ready to record my final version.

The line: Thrice welcome! crested visitants

Everywhere online I have looked, "visitants" is pronounced "visitents." But the next line ends with "haunts," and pronouncing "visitants" as "visitents" would make it not rhyme. But every other line is rhyming. How should I pronounce it?

Thanks!

If you can make the rhyme without it sounding odd, then go for it. I think the French pronunciation of visitant (https://forvo.com/word/visitant/#fr) comes closer to rhyming with haunt, so you could consider that.
Otherwise don't worry about it. All we can do is read it as written.

PS I realized as I was uploading that I read the longer disclaimer even though this was under 800 words. Let me know if you want me to replace it with the shorter one.
