Poem of the Month


I had no intention ever of translating Rilke's famous, much-translated 
and strangely cold, un-empathetic poem about the ever-pacing
PANTHER in the horrible Paris zoo
- but came across a beautiful panther-picture,
so I made a new version/translation to accompany it.
Links will allow you to see other translations,
some of them almost unbelievably bad.
