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

Zu bergen Geistgeschenk im Innern
Gebietet strenge mir mein Ahnen,
Dass reifend Gottesgaben
In Seelengründen fruchtend
Der Selbstheit Früchte bringen.

∇∆

‘Cease not to guard the spirit’s kernel’
My daimonion’s warning, stern, resounds
‘Tend that slow-ripening gift of gods
That lies within thy soul’s own fertile ground
And pulses with selfhood’s promise.’
