A couple of minutes ago, I uploaded my 500. LibriVox recording!!!!

500. LibriVox recording!!!

It took me almost exactly 9 months to record 100 sections. My 500. section is a short poem for the fortnightly poetry collection. The poem is rather sad, but also very beautiful and it is called “Are The Children at Home?” by Margaret Elizabeth Sangster.  Here is my recording of it and also the first paragraph of the poem:

Each day, when the glow of sunset
Fades in the western sky,
And the wee ones, tired of playing,
Go tripping lightly by,
I steal away from my husband,
Asleep in his easy-chair,
And watch from the open door-way
Their faces fresh and fair.

The full poem can be found here and here are all my other 499 recordings: https://catalog.librivox.org/people_public.php?peopleid=3885
