Calendar of the Soul XLVI

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

Die Welt, sie drohet zu betäuben
Der Seele eingebor’ne Kraft;
Nun trete du, Erinnerung,
Aus Geistestiefen leuchtend auf
Und stärke mir das Schauen,
Das nur durch Willenskräfte
Sich selbst erhalten kann


Nature, she threatens to confound
The soul’s self-recollection;
Therefore, stand forth, thou,
O, memory! From the mind’s dark ground
And with thy shining lantern held aloft
In firm resolve, my sight expound
With thy self-sustaining light.
