A Poet Looks At The Moon by Edward Powys Mathers, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal URL.]
Then read the poem:
I hear a woman singing in my garden,
But I look at the moon in spite of her.

I have no thought of trying to find the singer
Singing in my garden;
I am looking at the moon.

And I think the moon is honouring me
With a long silver look.

I blink
As bats fly black across the ray;
But when I raise my head the silver look
Is still upon me.

The moon delights to make eyes of poets her mirror,
And poets are many as dragon scales
On the moonlit sea.

From the Chinese of Chang Jo Hsu.


At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:

Good reading Eric, but could you cut the opening silence down to spec = .5 - 1 second please. The filename is incorrect, please use the sample in the opening post instructions
File name - all in lowercase: poetlooks_mathers_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. poetlooks_mathers_klh_128kb.mp3 )
Thanks.
