Calendar of the Soul XXXVII

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

Zu tragen Geisteslicht in Weltenwinternacht
Erstrebet selig meines Herzens Trieb,
Daß leuchtend Seelenkeime
In Weltengründen wurzeln,
Und Gotteswort im Sinnesdunkel
Verklärend alles Sein durchtönt.


To bear the light of mind

Into the night of world-winter
Withal I strive from out my heart of hearts,
A shining kernel in the soul
Imparted in the world-ground,
Then the sacred Word, in dark of sense, resounds
And draws all beings to Transfiguration.
