WEEKLY POEMS   Consisting of fourteen or more lyrical audio poems in Modern English, recorded by Walter Rufus Eagles in streaming RealMedia audio and updated daily during the school year as early as possible after sundown the night before (Mountain Time, USA)  but no later than 1400 GMT the following day, for optimal convenience of students and teachers in continental USA and in Hawaii.  Click HERE to visit weekly archives of all fourteen cycles (a cycle is seven weeks long) of the first half of the anthology project, 1,001 poems in each half, the last fourteen cycles ending May 1, 2006 (God willing I live that long!) for a grand total of 2,002 poems in twenty eight cycles.  If I should live until May 1, 2010, the project will have doubled to 4,004 poems in fifty six cycles spanning eight years of research, study and recording.  I shall then move on to the recording of fine prose in Modern English, beginning with the Tattler and the Spectator essays as well as those of Charles Lamb, together with selections from The Autobiography of Lincoln Steffens, and with selections from Let Us Now Praise Famous Men by James Agee.
