Calendar of the Soul IX

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

Vergessend meine Willenseigenheit
Erfüllet Weltenwärme sommerkündend
Mir Geist und Seelenwesen;
Im Licht mich zu verlieren
Gebietet mir das Geistesschauen,
Und kraftvoll kündet Ahnung mir:
Verliere dich, um dich zu finden.

∇∆

Forgotten is my sovereign will
As world-warmth, announcing summer, fills
My wakeful heart and dreaming mind;
‘To lose myself in light,’
Obliges me, the season’s wisdom,
And powerfully incites me further:
‘You must have lost yourself, yourself to find!’
