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

Es spricht zum Weltenall,
Sich selbst vergessend
Und seines Urstands eingedenk,
Des Menschen wachsend Ich:
In dir, befreiend mich
Aus meiner Eigenheiten Fessel,
Ergründe ich mein echtes Wesen.

∇∆

These words, to the world expanse,
Out of presently forgotten self,
(As of an echo from time’s furthest distance)
Speaks the ever-ripening human I:
“In your manumitting vastness,
Freed from the clutches of my self,
I discover my true essence.”
