You'll want to hear Richard Armitage reading these

This is such a treat! Richard Armitage's liquid baritone hits all the right notes. You'll find yourself listening to the poems repeatedly, anticipating that slight inflection or pause that makes all the difference. I loved the Emerson poem best, but they are all a gift. Thank you Audible, and thank you Richard Armitage!
