Calendar of the Soul II

“Calendar of the Soul”—Rudolf Steiner’s 52 Verses for the Year
Second Week of the Year
Below is Dr Steiner’s original verse followed by my translation into English.

Ins Äussre des Sinnesalls
Verliert Gedankenmacht ihr Eigensein;
Es finden Geisteswelten
Den Menschensprossen wieder
Der seinen Keim in ihnen,
Doch seine Seelenfrucht
In sich muss finden.


In the festival of senses
The power of thought risks self-surrender.
In myriad realms of cosmic mind
The human germ will ever sprout anew
But the soul’s own ripened fruit
The soul, within itself, must find.
