Burn’s Night Voice Thread

Rabbie's Red Rose

Just a short post to let you all know that in honour of Burns’ Night, which is tomorrow (25th Jan), I’ve recorded another voice thread. See if you can guess which poem I’m reciting (hint: the clue is in the photo).


January 24, 2008. Creativity.

    You have a great voice!

    I’m celebrating a wee bit early by doing a T13 on the topic of 13 Scottish Monarchs. (http://fremontlibraries.wordpress.com/2008/01/24/thirteen-scottish-monarchs/)

    Have a great Burns Supper!

    Amy, it’s been so nice getting to ‘meet’ you this week. I loved hearing the voice thread last night, and I’ll be including a link to it in a post that’s going up… once I’ve had a cup of tea πŸ™‚

    Best wishes

    You know I would like you to come read me bedtime stories, your voice is divine.
    Oops, I think I forgot to mention you have mail coming.
    How interesting you have a night to celebrate such a great poet/storyteller. One of my favs, of course, I have so few who I do not like.
    You can keep the haggis though, I am sure if it was served to me, I would try it….but you know us Americans.

  5. Penelope Anne replied:

    Darn, pop into the Cafe, I have a silly award I made…I am not giving it to anyone specific, you take it if you want it.

  6. bobleckridge replied:

    well, well, well….I did one too! Guess which poems I did!

    Thank you, Celtic Librarian. Will definitely check out your TT – Great topic!

    It was lovely meeting you too, Joanna πŸ™‚

    Penelope Anne, I joked with Nicholas a while back that I should get a job reading for insomniacs. All those nights of reading bedtime stories, I think!

    I just find this so funny, Dad! Funny haha and funny strange πŸ™‚

    For those who don’t understand Dad’s comment check out this post, follow the link to his voice thread, and keep in mind that we didn’t collaborate and that we came up with our voice threads completely independently. As he says, it’s enough to make you wonder about the power of genetics!

  8. Nicholas replied:

    Well, I felt sure there was a mouse cowrin’ behind that rose, so I was certain I knew which poem you’d read. I was wrong!

    But what joy to hear your delightful voice again! That thread has been bookmarked for many future listenings.

    Ah, wee sleekit cowrin timrous beastie, oh what a panic is in thy breastie. Know it well, Nicholas, but wasn’t my choice for this year. Maybe next year πŸ˜‰

  10. Mike replied:

    I enjoyed the voice thread. I think it is so great that you have a night for celebrating a great poet. For some reason I can’t imagine that happening in America… Maybe Walt Whitman day? We could all lay in the grass and contemplate our oneness with the universe πŸ™‚

    Lying in the grass and contemplating oneness doesn’t sound so bad, Mike! Glad you liked the voice thread. I had fun making it!
