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

Ergreifend neue Sinnesreize
Erfüllet Seelenklarheit,
Eingedenk vollzogener Geistgeburt,
Verwirrend sprossend Weltenwerden
Mit meines Denkens Schöpferwillen.

∇∆

Behold! The shimmering weft of senses
Made manifest by inner light
And in the sight itself: the Spirit’s birth—
A secret sprouting from the solid Earth
To scale the airy ladder wrought
Of my own self-willed and self-creating thought.

    You know it’s funny, in the program I’m in right now–another student who is doing his dissertation on Steiner, and I, are engaged in a near month-long discussion of him.

      Hello! I try to make myself one of Rudolf Steiner’s sons in my spiritual-intellectual life. I would love to participate in your discussion in some way.

        Hard to really imagine how that will go. But I’ll politely nudge him in your blog’s direction. Maybe he’ll leave a comment. Maybe he won’t. I see him on Thursday at our next seminar.
