But I had wanted to link it to Amaya’s dVerse prompt for “Smoke and Mirrors.” But I was late…

Since my poem takes place on a golf course, I am going to give you all sorts of links. Amaya gives us a version of “The Panther” by Rilke in her post. I have never found a version as beautiful as the original German. But I think the most wonderful English translation is by Walter Arndt. Here is a link to a site that has five different translations. Find the one by Arndt, and tell me if I’m not right. 🙂
