Fragment: To The Mind Of Man by Percy Bysshe Shelley, read for librivox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, and/or your location.]
Then read the poem:
Thou living light that in thy rainbow hues
Clothest this naked world; and over Sea
And Earth and air, and all the shapes that be
In peopled darkness of this wondrous world
The Spirit of thy glory dost diffuse
… truth … thou Vital Flame
Mysterious thought that in this mortal frame
Of things, with unextinguished lustre burnest
Now pale and faint now high to Heaven upcurled
That eer as thou dost languish still returnest
And ever
Before the … before the Pyramids

So soon as from the Earth formless and rude
One living step had chased drear Solitude
Thou wert, Thought; thy brightness charmed the lids
Of the vast snake Eternity, who kept
The tree of good and evil.
At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.
Leave 5 seconds of silence at the end.

Hi! This is my first recording :D

Welcome to Librivox Emily, good first reading :D one tech note, your file is in stereo, we need a mono recording. I see you are using GarageBand, I am not sure how to get a mono file, perhaps the info contained here will help. https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=GarageBand (most people here use Audacity, which is available for Apple.)
