Calendar of the Soul IV


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

Ich fühle Wesen meines Wesens:
So spricht Empfindung,
Die in der sonnerhellten Welt
Mit Lichtesfluten sich vereint;
Sie will dem Denken
Zur Klarheit Wärme schenken.
Und Mensch und Welt
In Einheit fest verbinden.


I feel my heart of hearts:
So speaks the sentient soul
And streaming through the sunlit world
She sallies forth on floods of light
Resolved that, from her active mind
Should proceed the gift of warmth to clarity
And in high communion bind
The world-soul and humankind.
