Hi Susan,
another fine effort. I think the question comes down to the choice of the word "amorous" in L9--is there justification for that?

My German isn't good enough to fully understand the contents of this page, but you might find it useful:

Thanks for the read!

Martin, "glühend" can mean "ardent," but I wanted a three-syllable word for that place in the line, so I thought "amorous" was a good synonym for "ardent."
