Calendar of the Soul XXV

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

Ich darf nun mir gehören
Und leuchtend breiten Innenlicht
In Raumes- und in Zeitenfinsternis.
Zum Schlafe drängt natürlich Wesen,
Der Seele Tiefen sollen wachen
Und wachend tragen Sonnengluten
In kalte Winterfluten.

∇∆

At last, myself again may I indwell
So drawing inward to behold a secret dawn
As cosmic night descends through space and time.
As nature spirits soon, to slumber, shall incline,
A wakefulness is kindled in the depths of mind,
Enlightened by a rising inner sun
In Winter’s swell.
