Calendar of the Soul XXVI

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

Natur, dein mütterliches Sein,
Ich trage es in meinem Willenswesen;
Und meines Willens Feuermacht,
Sie stählet meines Geistes Triebe,
Daß sie gebären Selbstgefühl
Zu tragen mich in mir.


Nature! Thy maternal kind
I bear within as substance of my will—
My will, that’s true like fire bright
Shall sear away all frailties of my mind
And, with resolve like tempered steel,
I will bear myself aright.

Painting by David Newbatt
