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

So fühl ich erst mein Sein,
Das fern vom Welten-Dasein
In sich, sich selbst erlöschen
Und bauend nur auf eignem Grunde
In sich, sich selbst ertöten müsste.

∇∆

At last I feel my inner being
Which, severed from the world’s ground,
Alone, could only pine & wither,
And in the constant effort to create itself,
Would have spent itself to death.
