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

An Sinnesoffenbarung hingegeben
Verlor ich Eigenwesens trieb,
Gedankentraum, er schien
Betäubend mir das Selbst zu rauben,
Doch weckend nahet schon
Im Sinnenschein mir Weltendenken.

∇∆

Lost amidst the senses’ revelation
I had forfeit my own being’s aim
And dreamlike weavings seemed
To rend me from my self-experience;
But when we dream we dream,
Then are we near awakening
To the dawn of cosmic thinking.
