Calendar of the Soul XV

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

Ich fühle wie verzaubert
Im Weltenschein das Geistesweben:
Es hat in Sinnesdumpfheit
Gehüllt mein Eigenwesen,
Zu schenken mir die Kraft:
Die, ohnmächtig sich selbst zu geben,
Mein Ich in seinen Schranken ist.


Spellbound in a shining weft
Wrought of world-spirit’s ceaseless weaving—
It has, enworking, wrapped
Me in an envelope of its enchantment,
Wherein a chrysalis may grow in strength—
Embraced by shining threads that give
My nascent self, a place to call its own.
