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

Zu sommerlichen Höhen
Erhebt der Sonne leuchtend Wesen sich;
Es nimmt mein menschlich Fühlen
In seine Raumesweiten mit.
Erahnend regt im Innern sich
Empfindung, dumpf mir kündend,
Erkennen wirst du einst:
Dich fühlte jetzt ein Gotteswesen.

∇∆

The sun, enthroned in summer’s height
Weaves a net with threads of warmth and light
And casts it upon the atmospheric sea
Then draws its harvest, and with it, me.
A premonition stirs within
A subtle inkling, faint surmised
That one day you will recognise:
A godly presence felt in thee.
