A poetry collection, which I think is a good source for poetry collections, or even done as a solo project.
https://archive.org/details/songsofoutlandsb00knib/page/n9

The poem "Out There Somewhere" was extensively quoted in and was the basis for Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Return of the Mucker."

I didn't read all the poems, but I did a couple. I really would like to hear "The Patriot" and "My Heart's Desire". I would do them myself, but they're definitely from the POV of a male.

Knibbs died in '45, so he's PD for most everyone.

(He also wrote some Western stories: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/author/4257 )

I have an old friend who would love hearing these. She'd even kiss me once or twice.

If you would MC, Ill do it all solo, unless you have other ideas.

I wouldn't want to get in the way of anyone else, though, and I'm still working on clearing off my plate of 'to do.' We'll see what can be done.

Thanks for the suggestion!
E agora, José?

I'm currently over-full on MC projects, so I shouldn't take on any more at this time. Maybe in a month or two...
