Calendar of the Soul XXXVIII

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

Ich fühle wie entzaubert
Das Geisteskind im Seelenschoss;
Es hat in Herzenshelligkeit
Gezeugt das Heilige Weltenwort
Der Hoffnung Himmelsfrucht,
Die jubelnd wächst in Weltenfernen
Aus meines Wesens Gottesgrund.

∇∆

I feel how, with magic force,
The spirit-germ within my soul as husk,
Has, in triumph ever-higher
Begot the hallowed World-Word,
And in hopeful heavenly choir
Rejoicing rings to cosmic distances
Out of my being’s ground.
