Surrendering to senses' revelation I lost the drive of my own being, And dreamlike thinking seemed To daze and rob me of myself. Yet quickening there draws near In sense appearance cosmic thinking.
by Ruth and Hans Pusch
An Sinnesoffenbarung hingegeben Verlor ich Eigenwesens Trieb, Gedankentraum, er schien Betäubend mir das Selbst zu rauben, Doch weckend nahet schon Im Sinnenschein mir Weltendenken.
The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield
Captive to all the pageantry of sense I lost the pressure of my single being; thoughts like to dreams were spiriting my self away, it seems; now -- now in what the senses make appear the Thinking of the World itself draws near.
