Calendar of the Soul XVIII

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

Kann ich die Seele weiten,
Dass sie sich Selbst verbindet
Empfangnem Welten-Keimesworte?
Ich ahne, dass ich Kraft muss finden,
Die Seele würdig zu gestalten,
Zum Geistes-Kleide sich zu bilden.

∇∆

Can I allow my soul to widen
That in her compass she should comprehend
The World-Word, in pith and kernel?
Straining, I discerned at once the answer:
I have make my own soul worthy
If she should dawn the spirit’s raiment.
