Calendar of the Soul I

SEELENKALENDAR
“Calendar of the Soul”—Rudolf Steiner’s 52 Verses for the Year
First Week of the Year ∆ 
Below is Dr Steiner’s original verse followed by my translations into Swedish and English.

OSTER STIMMUNG

Wenn aus den Weltenweiten
Die Sonne spricht zum Menschensinn
Und Freude aus den Seelentiefen
Dem Licht sich eint im Schauen,
Dann ziehen aus der Selbstheit Hülle
Gedanken in die Raumesfernen
Und binden dumpf
Des Menschen Wesen an des Geistes Sein.

PÅSKE STÄMNING

Om, ur den fjärran rymden,
Solen talar till det mänskliga sinnet
Och glädje, från själens djup,
Förbindar ljuset med människans syn,
Då drar ut ur självets skal
Tankar som flytar ut till dem yttre himlarna
Och bindar, vagt,
Människans väsen med andens varelse.

☽ EASTER-MOOD ☉

“If from far-flung spaces of the world
The sunlight calls to human senses
And elation, from the depths of mind,
Weds the light with seeing in the deed of sight
Then the soul is from the husk of self unfurled
By the quickening force of cosmic thought
Wafting in from heavenly heights
And in faint communion binds
The human essence with the Spirit’s being.”
