Calendar of the Soul XXXIV

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

Geheimnisvoll das Alt-Bewahrte
Mit neu erstandnem Eigensein
Im Innern sich belebend fühlen:
Es soll erweckend Weltenkräfte
In meines Lebens Außenwerk ergießen
Und werdend mich ins Dasein prägen.


Scarce-known yet long-preserved of old
Now in a flood of newly-fangled presence
Rises inwardly as feeling tide:
Bestirring forces from the world wide
To pour withal into my life’s mould
And I shall set my seal upon existence.
