I messed up. :oops: The title for section 27 should be, "Longing for Spring-time".

Ha! Three seasonal poems -- Recorded by candlelight while the power was out due to yet another heavy ice storm. But, warmer here in New Hampshire than in Houston, Texas, I think. :shock:

Messing up is the first step to straightening out! :mrgreen:

Hello,

This is my first ever submission so I hope I did this right!

The Dole of the King's Daughter by Oscar Wilde 1854-1900
Text URL: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/1057/1057-h/1057-h.htm#page143
Duration: 00.01.35
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc2133_doleofthekingsdaughter_ccr_128kb.mp3
Name for the Catalog: CCatharina (if that's possible). I have no personal URL.

Excited to be here! If there are any issues with anything I won't be offended at all. If anything, I expect it :p.

Kind regards,
Catharina

Hello again,

I just found the Checker Tool and checked my recording.
As I suspected, I did some things wrong.

I've uploaded the new and improved version:
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc2133_doleofthekingsdaughter_ccr_128kb.mp3
I didn't know if I could use the same MP3 name, but I assumed I should follow the format.

Hopefully, there are no further issues.

Kind regards,
Catharina

Hello CCatharina! Welcome to Librivox and to the Poetry Collection!

Here's your Reader Page: https://librivox.org/reader/15821 which you can also access from your name-link in the Magic Windows. It lists the projects you read for, and can also help you keep track of your sections in ongoing projects under the "Reader Section Details" link.

Congratulations on your first recording! :clap: :clap: The Checker is an invaluable tool! I'm glad you found it! So your recording is PL OK, I will just have to fix the filename at cataloguing, because there's a double 3 in there. No problem!

Oh I didn't even notice the double 3!
My laptop's keyboard is way more sensitive than my computer's. I'll keep that in mind in the future.

Thank you for the warm welcome!

Amazing, Rachel! Thank you! :clap:

Would you check the "Sheep" poem, I think it's repeated in the recording. It's a funny poem :D

Two more Lent poems, slightly less gloomy than my other one for this month.

"E Tenebris" by Oscar Wilde, 1854-1900
https://www.bartleby.com/143/21.html
1:10
https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc213_etenebris_jmh_128kb.mp3

"The Temper (1)" by George Herbert, 1593-1633 (The number in the title is there because it's the first of two poems by that name which he wrote, but the number wasn't in the source text so I didn't read it out)
https://archive.org/details/poemsofgeorgeher031171mbp/page/n83/mode/2up?q=lent
2:01

(Thanks very much to KevinS for helping me find an obviously public-domain source that included all the stanzas)
