Yes. It's a wonderful recording by Richard Armitage of a lovely selection of classic love poems... his delivery moves one's heart, mind and soul!
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!
Richard Armitage reads love poems with a voice like a goblet of Merlot poured from a thick glass decanter waiting next to crimson rose petals scattered across a chenille duvet over down and crisp linen laid out smooth on the feather bed with the maroon velvet bed curtains held back with but the loosest of ties.
"We can do it!"
This is a lovely collection of some of my favorite poems. Richard Armitage's recitation is rich and heartfelt. So, so beautiful!
A short Valentine's treat.
I have listened to Richard Armitage read Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, also. He is a marvelous narrator.
