Calendar of the Soul XXVII

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

In meines Wesens Tiefen dringen:
Erregt ein ahnungsvolles Sehnen,
Daß ich mich selbstbetrachtend finde,
Als Sommersonnengabe, die als Keim
In Herbstesstimmung wärmend lebt
Als meiner Seele Kräftetrieb.

∇∆

In forgotten stations of my being
Long-lost intimations stir to life
Faint…then in sparks of self-encounter
Awakening has found its special hour
For Summer’s sun, in dying still abides
As inner warmth which, be it autumntide,
Yet lives on as germinating power.
