Quiet by Madison Cawein (1865 - 1914).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/quiet-by-madison-cawein/
Cawein's description of "A log-hut in the solitude", taken from The Poems of Madison Cawein, Volume 3, Nature Poems. ( David Lawrence)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
Quiet by Madison Cawein, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal URL.]
Then read the poem:
A log-hut in the solitude,
A clapboard roof to rest beneath!
This side, the shadow-haunted wood;
That side, the sunlight-haunted heath.

At daybreak Morn will come to me
In raiment of the white winds spun;
Slim in her rosy hand the key
That opes the gateway of the sun.

Her smile will help my heart enough
With love to labor all the day,
And cheer the road, whose rocks are rough,
With her smooth footprints, each a ray.

At dusk a voice will call afar,
A lone voice like the whippoorwill’s;
And, on her shimmering brow one star,
Night will descend the western hills.

She at my door till dawn will stand,
With gothic eyes, that, dark and deep,
Are mirrors of a mystic land,
Fantastic with the towns of sleep.


At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:
File name - all in lowercase: quiet_cawein_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. quiet_cawein_klh_128kb.mp3 )


ID3 tags (Version 2.30): ID Tags are completed during Cataloging

*Readers, please check back in a day or so for any feedback regarding your reading.

*Best to copy the filename provided above into the LV Uploader, inserting your initials of course. :wink:

Let me know if I've mangled the author's surname too much. I'm happy to fix it.

Welcome to LibriVox Michael :D good first reading. :thumbs:

You've labeled your file 'Version 2', don't worry if you need to upload a corrected file, the first file gets renamed on our uploader so it is available if needed, but does not show up on the forum. :wink:

*Please let me know under what name would you like to appear in the LV catalog and if you have one, we can put your personal URL link on your catalog page too.

Welcome to LibriVox Roger, good first reading. :thumbs: Could you upload the file again with the correct filename, the 128kb is missing, we need the for the cataloging process. :wink: (Best to copy the filename provided in the opening post. )

Thanks for the tip on copying the filename. I'll do that going forward.

Here's the renamed version:
