Duration: 0 hours 24 minutes
LibriVox volunteers bring you 17 recordings of Will Nobody Marry Me? by George Pope Morris. This was the Fortnightly Poetry project for July 3, 2011.
In addition to his publishing and editorial work, Morris was popular as a poet and songwriter; especially well-known was his poem-turned-song "Woodman, Spare that Tree!" His songs in particular were popular enough that Graham's Magazine in Philadelphia promised Morris $50, sight unseen, for any work he wanted to publish in the periodical. (summary from Wikipedia)
