Calendar of the Soul V


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

Im Lichte, das aus Geistestiefen
Im Raume fruchtbar webend
Der Götter Schaffen offenbart:
In ihm erscheint der Seele Wesen
Geweitet zu dem Weltensein
Und auferstanden
Aus enger Selbstheit Innenmacht.


Lo! The light (which from the spirit’s depths
Weaves creation through the cosmic skies)
Reveals the handiwork of gods:
In them, the soul herself may recognise
And let them bear her out to span the widths of space
And let them draw her out from selfhood’s clutches.
