Calendar of the Soul XXXIII

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

So fühl ich erst die Welt,
Die außer meiner Seele Miterleben
An sich nur frostig leeres Leben
Und ohne Macht sich offenbarend,
In Seelen sich von neuem schaffend,
In sich den Tod nur finden könnte.

∇∆

For the first, that world I now behold
Which, without my soul’s involvement
Were but a bleak and barren land
Cold, it were, and unensouled,
Bereft of revelatory power
Without a soul to whom it would itself unveil
Could naught but pine and fade.
