  1. So creative! Were lucky to have not only education on npd but also your creativity that you share with us HG ty!🤗

  2. HG
    Always a pleasure to kick back and let you take us on a journey with that beautiful instrument that is your voice. Thank you.

  3. I very much enjoyed listening! Also the Raven. I hope perhaps you can put out an audio book of your favorite prose. Nice to curl up with a glass of wine by the fire, relax and listen. I was thinking also about my favorite book Wuthering Heights, how Heathcliff is a narcissist. I can imagine your narration on Emily Bronte great works. Thank you HG, for always being unexpected. Wow!

  4. I had to listen to this again it was so beautiful. I have never read poetry and I certainly don’t know any men who recite poetry. Now I can say I know (of) one.

    You are special.

  5. Although it was a nice spring day in Down Under I enjoyed so much this beautiful reading.
    HG, I am sure most of the readers dream about audiobook with your poetry reading. Your reading are so expressive Sir, you make all words sounds so lively!
    We would be delighted for your reading of Lord Byron’ s poetry.

  6. What a perfect cool, stormy, autumnal, coffee, pajama day for classical poetry. And a great early birthday!

    HG, how did you know I wanted the classics for my birthday?

  7. A few years back, the wind started picking up audibly. I went out on the back porch, wondering whether to recite Shelley’s Ode or just run out into the nearest field, shrieking, “Heathcliff!” The wind got really strong, and I had a sudden impulse to go back in, shut the door, pull the curtains, and take a nap in a central room away from any windows.

    It turned out later we were getting the offshoot of a hurricane several states away. There were several fatalities, as people got hit by falling trees.

    I was lucky I didn’t go out, particularly since I had not checked the forecast, and in retrospect, lucky I hadn’t heard HG’s reading of the Ode, because even knowing the forecast, I might have been dazzled enough to go out anyway….

    Oh, dear.

  8. Just listened to ‘The Raven’. Your reading was excellent. I love hearing the work by an American literary icon like Poe in a British accent. It shows the globalization of it all–great poetry goes without country.

    I would love to hear you read Hart Crane’s ‘The Broken Tower’. I think you would be great.

  9. “Scatter, as from an unextinguish’d hearth / Ashes and sparks, my words among mankind!” I will just say I’m glad my narc preferred Keats. Had he liked Shelley better, and recited with your voice, I would be done. This was a lovely present for a windy autumn Saturday afternoon, thank you. I’ll listen to it again and again.

      1. Bibi, good to see you back! I was missing your comments. I knew poetry would make it.
