Short Poetry Collection 101

(2 stars)

I've been looking on the Internet for at least thirty minutes for a recording of Little Boy Boy by Eugene Fielding. Unfortunately, when I finally found it, it was not something that I wanted to keep, the reason being that the reader is unsatisfactory. There are probably exceptions, but I just feel that women do not have the equipment or ability to properly recite poetry, at least a recording that I am willing to listen to. "Gravitas" is a word that one sometimes hears in political discussions these days, and that may be what they lack. In any event, I'll just have to keep looking until I find someone who has a suitable voice, and who knows how to recite poetry.
