The only problem is no titles, but they're listed on the audible website, in the publisher's summary, just where you're reading this review

Badly produced audio version

The narrator (James Mason) does not say the poem titles before reading each, and nowhere are the poems listed. James Mason does a fabulous job of reading, but don't bother buying this version because the titles are not included in the readings.
