Calendar of the Soul XXXI

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

Das Licht aus Geistestiefen,
Nach außen strebt es sonnenhaft.
Es wird zur Lebenswillenskraft
Und leuchtet in der Sinne Dumpfheit,
Um Kräfte zu entbinden,
Die Schaffensmächte aus Seelentrieben
Im Menschenwerke reifen lassen.

∇∆

Radiant is the depths of mind
Which emanates in sunlike fullness
Transforming light to life and will
Enlivening the senses’ dullness
To rouse the soul to action till
Her will may overperch her soulness
And mature as deeds of humankind.
